Description

For Italy, 1968 marked another good year and saw the first public release of Sassicaia
Barone Ricasoli is the largest and oldest wine estate in the Chianti Classico region and is one of the four oldest businesses in the world. Based at the famous Castello di Brolio in Gaiole, it is known for its top-quality Sangiovese-dominant wines, and has a reputation for fair pricing.

The estate has around 235 hectares (580 acres) of vineyards in its grounds, which surround the Castello di Brolio, stretching across the communes of Gaiole and Castelnuovo Berardenga. The cellars are situated at the foot of the castle and combine the traditional with the new in terms of winemaking. Ricasoli's wines are vinified in small, gravity-fed steel vats, which allow vineyard lots to be kept separate.
Documentary evidence for the Ricasoli family dates back to the 7th Century and the time of Charlemagne, and Brolio Castle has been in the family s ownership since 1141. Bettino Ricasoli, the Iron Baron, was the second prime minister of united Italy.

In the 1960s, the family sold the Castello di Brolio wine name to Seagram along with production, although they continued to manage the land. Since 1993, all aspects of the business have been back under family control and output has been much reduced in favor of quality.
