The 2007 Chianti Classico Castello di Brolio offers up rich textured dark fruit in a succulent style that is very appealing. French oak gives the Castello di Brolio notable volume and body in addition to an attractive smokiness that works quite nicely in this vintage. The Castello di Brolio can be enjoyed today for its forward fruit or cellared for another decade or so. Anticipated maturity: 2010-2020. -Antonio Galloni

Coming off the success of a #5 ranking on Wine Spectator's Top 100 with their 2006 vintage Castello di Brolio delivers a worthy successor with their 2007. Dark inky purple in color all the way to the rim this features a wide array of beautifully harmonious aromas-dark berry and plum coffee bean mocha and a whiff of anise. Full-bodied concentrated and rich on the palate this showcases juicy ripe dark fruit and a licorice note coming through on the back. A powerful wine at this stage but with a graceful smooth texture terrific balance and sweet tannins that should continue to integrate enjoy this Italian beauty now with a a few hours of air or let it evolve over the next 5-10 years.
