From producer, Barone Ricasoli, the red wine blend for this Chianti Classico Brolio from the 2014 vintage are mostly Sangiovese grapes with some Merlot and Cabernet Sauvignon. Juicy and robust with fleshy ripe black cherry and earth. Pair with pasta in tomato sauce.

Chianti Classico food pairings: bucatini with sausage and peas, roast beef, cheesy pizza, stuffed roasted turkey, pasta with tomato sauce.

Reviews and Ratings

Monique Sosa - Accredited Sommelier rated this wine as 90/100 with the following review:

I look forward to these bottles every holiday season as they get released into the Ontario markets in higher volume. A superb bargain for quality historic Chianti Classico by Barone Ricasoli. It's bold, sweet and savoury carrying lasting notes of ripe cherry and earthy underbrush. Acidity is high and mouthwatering making it the perfect saucy pizza wine. Also, enjoying pairing with tomato sauce-based dished. Tasted July 2017 by @sommsosa | bespoketastings.ca
The Chianti Classico, Ricasoli Brolio (2014) is a classic from Tuscany and this very respected winery located between Florence and Siena in the heart of Tuscany. are mostly Sangiovese grapes with some Merlot and Cabernet Sauvignon. The 2014 vintage is a red wine blend of 80% Sangiovese with about 15% Merlot and 5% Cabernet Sauvignon. The wine is youthful with dark cherry and blackberry flavours finishing spicy. Drink now or cellar for three years. - Community Wine Reviews
