PRODUCT OVERVIEW:
With a history that dates back to the year 1141, Ricasoli is documented as the oldest winery in Italy and the fourth oldest family business in the world. Its most famous historical contribution came from Baron Bettino Ricasoli, who was not only twice the prime minister of Italy but after 30 years of experimentation and documentation, developed the original formula for the Chianti wine that became the standard for the region.*

When Carlo Ferrini leaves his imprint on a Tuscan wine, the results are sure to be sublime. The secret to his success lies in his intimate knowledge of Tuscany and his unwavering belief that wines are made in the vineyards, and in order to achieve greatness, one must let the terroir do the talking. He has spent the better part of the last three decades putting his beliefs and talents to the test, first cutting his teeth working for the Consorzio of Chianti Classico, then acting as consulting agronomist for some of the most famous estates in Tuscany, including Ricasoli. Carlo's hard work and passion have paid off; he has elevated many Tuscan wineries to iconic status and has satisfied the palates of legions of wine lovers with hundreds of highly-rated wines over the years.

Today's wine is a blend of 60% Sangiovese, 30%, Merlot, and 10% Cabernet Sauvignon that is stainless-steel fermented and aged in seasoned oak barrels for 4 months prior to bottling. Medium-bodied, it has aromas of brambly red cherries, red currants, and raspberries that follow through on the plush, round palate, which also displays hints of savory herbs and stony minerality.
