Reviews and Ratings

Ricasoli Brolio 2017 Chianti Classico is a well-priced Chianti from the Tuscany wine region. Fragrant on the nose with ripe dark berry, cherry and spice; robust and layered with blackberry, strawberry, dark cherry, savoury herb, baking spices finishing long and spicy with food-friendly acidity. Pour with a meat-lover's pizza. - Community Wine Reviews
