With every wine I try from Barone Ricasoli I become more of a fan. Rich and bold while (patiently) revealing a deeper presence, depth and character. As it stretches out it exhibits more and more of its strengths. It becomes a fulfilling conversation to have.

Sweet red cherries, black tea leaves, dried shrooms, sandalwood. Fantastic extract with grippy tannins. Would have guessed Brunello based on the structure.

Pretty nose. Red cherries, red apple, rosemary. Great tannic structure, not overly astringent or tart. Excellent chianti Classico

Perfect pizza night wine. Ready to drink though. Don't feel like it has any aging left to do.

Weekend wine price for weekday taste. Lots of tannins, deep dark fruits.
