Description:
"Colledila" - the land which has been part of the Brolio estate for centuries - is the cru of this Chianti Classico DOCG that stands out due to its complex structure and great modern elegance.

The research on original clones that has been carried out at Barone Ricasoli for the last fifteen years and the work on the specific characteristics of the various plots of land on the estate have now given rise to a single varietal Sangiovese which manifests the magnificent gifts of this grape variety. The limited volumes of the Colledila cru render it all the more exclusive.

Pure and fresh, sporting black cherry, black currant and floral aromas and flavours. The tannins cut a dense swath, yet remain integrated. A touch of oak spice appears on the aftertaste. Fine length. Drink now through 2018.-B.S.Wine Spectator

Producer Information

After centuries defending the lands and the signorial feuds, the Ricasolis dedicated themselves to the development of agriculture and vineyards. Already in the 1600s documents report the first exports to Amsterdam and England, whereas at the start of the 1900s Brolio wines were known and exported all over the world: China, Saudi Arabia, South Africa, Guatemala, Costa Rica and the then British African colonies.
At just twenty years old, Bettino Ricasoli, known as the “Iron Baron”, began his research and experiments in Brolio, with the aim of producing a high-quality wine in Chianti, able to compete on an international level with the great French wines, the undisputed leaders of the time.
Bettino Ricasoli accomplished his mission through his awareness of the potential of the Brolio terroir together with his faith in technological progress and science applied to vinification processes.
Bettino Ricasoli’s search for the perfect wine was the beginning of the development of winemaking in the Chianti area according to modern economic and farming principles. The Baron boosted the development of roads and railways and worked with a great progressive spirit for that period to educate and involve farmers and croppers in a production philosophy that aimed at quality.
In 1867 wine from Brolio was awarded the first gold medal at the Paris Exposition.
Bettino Ricasoli travelled widely, visited cellars, brought avant-garde knowledge and tools to Chianti, involved illustrious researchers and scholars of the period in his mission and was wise and far-sighted in attending to the marketing and placing of Brolio wines on international markets. His commitment to the economic development of Chianti is interwoven with the history of a political man who was one of the main players of the Italian Risorgimento and Prime Minister of the unified Italy after Cavour. His determination gave a direction to what can be defined as a Risorgimento in Italian winemaking.
