2008 Chianti Classico Castello Di Brolio, Barone Ricasoli


2008 Chianti Classico Castello Di Brolio, Barone Ricasoli
For the hipster crowd who get their delicate spines in a tingle from a whiff of oak, this surely isn´t for them.
On the nose, the oak is there, but just to lend support to the huge amounts of ripe cherries, violets, grilled meat with some rosemary sprinkled on top, and some fine dark flowers. Very, very good.
The taste is still young, rather forceful and distinct with notes of chocolate covered cherried, flower water, Tuscan gravel and mixed herbs. A long, fine finish with silky tannins. 6+ years.
