Barone Ricasoli - Colledila 2007Modern Elegance
Available 19th Aug 2016
"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.'
