Castello di Brolio Chianti Classico 2010
- Red Wine
The 2010 Chianti Classico Castello di Brolio flaunts its pedigree and beauty right from the start. The bouquet is balanced and intense with a charming mixture of bright berry fruit and oak-driven tones of spice and tobacco. The fabric of the wine is firm, fresh and perfectly streamlined. Menthol highlights and grilled herbs are fitting endnotes. - WA
