Product Description

Casalferro was first produced in 1993 when Francesco Ricasoli became president of the company. A pure Merlot produced only during the best years, Casalferro is obtained from the vineyard of the same name located at 400 meters above sea level and facing south. The brown clay loam soil with little organic content contributes to the exclusive personality of this great Chianti Merlot. It is the Supertuscan of Brolio.

"Aromas of violets and plums with some crushed stone and tile, as well as spice, dark olives, flowers and mushrooms. Medium-to full-bodied with fine tannins and pretty fruit. Fresh and vivid with sweet tobacco and sweet plums. Fantastic length. This is much smaller production than in the past." - James Suckling

Tasting Notes: Intense ruby red in color with black walnut, vanilla, and spice on the nose. Elegant and velvety tannins ensure a long, persistent, and enveloping finish.
