Ricasoli is an institution in the Italian wine scene. That’s not hyperbole – they are literally the oldest documented winery in Italy. They’re soooo old – they’re the fourth oldest family business in the world!
With a history that traces back to 1141, they have been working the soils of Tuscany for almost 900 years. It is incredibly impressive.
As the current generation of Ricasoli owners will tell you – the only way you stay relevant for all these years is to have a relentless commitment to the land, to the community and to make wines that make people truly happy.
It’s what Baron Bettino Ricasoli did in the mid 1800s after two stints as prime minister of Italy when he devoted the 30 years after he left office to experiment and document his original formula for the Chianti wine that would become the standard for the entire region.
It’s what the current crop of Ricasolis are hoping to do with their transition to planting new grapes for a SuperTuscan that flat out shines.I’m not even really sure what it’s doing at this price – but the Ricasolis are hellbent on keeping everything priced so that they’re approachable for everyone.

“Sweet oak spice, cream, vanilla, and white chocolate notes, “It’s clean but with rustic and earthy notes, charming and well poised. Soft, opulent, plummy and ripe. Full-bodied with ripe tannins, black cherry and red plums. Plush mid-palate. Beautifully harmonious wine with lovely freshness on the finish. Ideal with Spicy cuisine, and duck.”
