Barone Ricasoli Castello di Brolio Colledila Chianti Classico 2010

The Barone Ricasoli Colledila Chianti Classico 2010 is a beautiful wine that is drinking extremely well now, this bottle could be stored in order for it to continue to develop, but I would not do so past 2022. This Italian red wine is made of the Sangiovese grape variety, which is synonymous with many of the red wines produced in Tuscany. The Colledila is ruby red in color and has floral aromas as well as the aromas of dark cherries and mushrooms. This is a full bodied wine with sweet tannins, the finish of ripe fruit is dominant yet it remains clean and elegant, the 2010 Colledila Chianti Classico is very well structured. The Colledila is what has to be considered by most a more expensive Chianti and has a bottle price of $40-$50, with this in mind, it also must be stated that there is considerable value here, to drink now or hold for a few more years. We paired this bottle, actually four of them, with a full house of family over on a Saturday night and our homemade cioppino, it was the Colledila that stole the show!  James Suckling scored the Castello di Brolio Colledila Chianti Classico 201o a score of 93 and I completely agree, a very nice Italian Chianti that is well balanced and a privilege to drink. Alla Salute!
