The soil of the vineyard of the same name consists of marine deposits of Pliocene origin, with the presence of sandy deposits and stones smoothed by the sea, while lower down there is clay. Good organic matter content. Marine fossils and lignite emerge on the surface. The slopes are gentle and the vineyard is located in the central part of the property, to the south of the clayey-limestone soils.
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.
