|Intense ruby red color. Complex aromas of iris and violets, red fruit and balsamic scents. Soft, elegant and well-smoothed tannins in the mouth. A true expression of the territory with well-balanced acidity and mineral tannins, before finishing long.|

The vineyards which produce the grapes for the Brolio label are planted in five geological areas at an elevation between 290 meters to 500 meters (853 to 1, 640 feet high) and with different exposures. Vineyard soils vary greatly but all are strewn with stony fragments adding mineral richness. This exalts the structure of the Chianti Classico vintage.
