Visit from Tuscany, Italy. Baron Francesco Ricasoli
On Monday the 28th Sept, I had the opportunity to meet with Owner and winemaker Baron Francesco Ricasoli. We had the privilege to taste several of wines produced on the family estate. The Castello-Brolio 2010 made from a meticulous selection of the best Sangiovese, Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot grapes from the estate's vineyards, was absolutely wonderful. Note that the Winery Casalferro made from 100% Merlot is pretty unique in sense that closing your eyes you're drawn in Bordeaux while tasting the mineral soils influence on this wine of Tuscany.
A family tradition dating from the 12th Century, the quality and passion has been pass on to generation.
Its no surprise that Baron Francesco Ricasoli spoke eloquently while addressing the amateurs present in French, English and sometimes adding an exclamation of Italian.
I took this unique occasion to have Baron Ricasoli to sign this awesome 2010 Castello-Brolio.
What a great evening, one to be remembered.
