This Cru grows on the great valley of the River Arbia, in the southernmost part of the property. The soil, very distinctive and complex, originates from an ancient river terrace dating back to the Pliocene-Pleistocene epochs. These are silty deposits, little evidence of stone, with the presence of clay, a little limestone and poor in organic matter.
Established in the Chianti Classico region at the Castello di Brolio in 1141, Barone Ricasoli is one of the four oldest wine estates in the world. With a history that dates back nearly a thousand years the story of Ricasoli has, not surprisingly, become closely interwoven with that of the region.
