Wine tour at BARONE RICASOLI Castle

Private tour inside Castello di Brolio

"Chianti Classico" or "Casalferro" wine tasting

Wine Spectator TOP100 for 4 times!

It’s not a dream… Be guest at the Castle of the noble family that CREATED the original “recipe” of CHIANTI. Enter the walls of the Castle and visit the Ricasoli private residence. The ghost of Rt. Hon. Bettino “Iron Baron” Ricasoli awaits to drink with you in the Hall of Arms.

This is a very particular and exclusive tour that includes a visit inside the Castle of Brolio, in the part that is the current residence of the Baroni Ricasoli family, NOT usually open for guests.

The vertical tasting (IMPOSSIBLE to enjoy elsewhere) of 3 historic vintages of Chianti Classico Castello di Brolio OR 3 historic vintages of Casalferro (both Wine Spectator TOP 100) takes place inside the historic and spectacular Hall of Arms.

The history of the Ricasoli family has been linked to wine since 1141, when there is written testimony attesting that the Ricasoli family already possessed Brolio Castle.

In fact, the family tree, reproduced in a print from 1584, is one of the first images of the Chianti area.

This absolutely exclusive, PRIVATE and unique experience INCLUDES:

  • Visit of the private actual residence of the Baron family in the Castle.
  • Guided tour of entire winery and Castle.
  • Vertical wine tasting of Wine Spectator’s TOP 100 wine in the Hall of Arms.
  • Classic Tuscan 5-course FULL LUNCH with targeted pairing of 4 wines, including also Chianti Classico Castello di Brolio or, by choice, Casalferro.

Barone Ricasoli
Chianti Classico Castello di Brolio 2006*.

Shows amazing aromas of blackberry, with hints of vanilla and flowers, along with black licorice and crushed berries. Full-bodied, with wonderfully caressing, ultrafine tannins. Very balanced and long. Best after 2011. 6,170 cases made. (JS)

Wine Spectator TOP100 2001 n.68, 92pts.
Barone Ricasoli
“supertuscan” Toscana Casalferro 1998*.

Wonderful aromas of blackberries, mineral, licorice and fruit lead to a full-bodied, with big, velvety tannins and a long, succulent, fruity aftertaste. Generous and rich. Mostly Sangiovese. A consistent top wine from Tuscany. Best after 2004. 8,800 cases made. (JS)

The ORIGINAL RECIPE of CHIANTI WINE, written by Rt. Hon. Baron Bettino Ricasoli in 1872:
Mi confermai nei risultati ottenuti già nelle prime esperienze cioè che il vino riceve dal Sangioveto la dose principale del suo profumo (a cui io miro particolarmente) e una certa vigoria di sensazione; dal Canajuolo l’amabilità che tempera la durezza del primo, senza togliergli nulla del suo profumo per esserne pur esso dotato; la Malvagia, della quale si potrebbe fare a meno nei vini destinati all’invecchiamento, tende a diluire il prodotto delle due prime uve, ne accresce il sapore e lo rende più leggero e più prontamente adoperabile all’uso della tavola quotidiana…
