Winemaker Notes

Intense ruby red in color. The nose is powerful with balsamic eucalyptus tones and ripe red fruit aromas. The wine is elegant and sharp with soft tannins. Excellent persistence smell taste. A cru of merlot that reflects the terroir of Brolio.
Wine Spectator - 
A silky, polished red, boasting cherry, currant, iron, tobacco and spice flavors. Features a solid core of tannins, but also vibrant acidity and fine length. Merlot.
 
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate -
Casalferro comes from a 20-hectare Merlot vineyard on the Brolio property. This is a delicious expression that shows no signs of over-ripeness. In fact, the wine achieves great balance with luscious fruit, wild berry, grilled herb, spice and soft cherry. In addition to the varietal pureness of the wine, it has also been "Chiantified," if I may invent a new wine term. In other words, it has taken on the freshness and the crisp mineral definition that characterizes the wines of the Chianti Classico zone (where this IGT Toscana wine is born).

 
James Suckling -
Aromas of currants, fresh sage and mint follow through to a full to medium body, fine tannins and a savory finish. Attractive fruit, acid balance.
