Intense ruby red color with complex aromas of iris and violets, red fruit, and balsamic scents. Soft, elegant and well-smoothed tannins - a true expression of the territory with well-balanced acidity and minerals and a long finish.

The 2016 Chianti Classico Brolio is a very pretty wine. Perfumed floral notes and silky tannins complement the bright, red-tone fruit nicely in this pretty, expressive mid-weight Chianti Classico. The freshness speaks to the personality of the year. This is very nicely done.

The 2016 Chianti Classico Brolio is a fresh and easy-drinking red wine with lots of vibrant primary fruit. This wine is all about the here and now, and you can sit back with a bottle and a box of take-out pizza for a chilled night at home. This vintage is finely tuned, elegant and nicely balanced. The finish is simple, thin and crisp. Brolio is a blend of 80% Sangiovese, 15% Merlot and 5% Cabernet Sauvignon.

A linear version, with cherry, raspberry, graphite and underbrush flavors framed by toasty oak. Firms up on the finish. Drink now through 2022.
