Muscular and harmonious, the nose offers sensations of plum, blackberry and delicate cherry. These aromas are echoed on the palate where they are flanked by embracing notes of chocolate. Deep ruby, almost purple, in appearance, its colour confirms the taste sensations. Extremely ageable..

– Winemaker at Barone Ricasoli Wines
The Casalferro is a blend of Sangiovese and Merlot that spent 18 months in French oak. It is a dark, backward wine but with air reticent notes of dark fruit and chocolate emerge. Sweet overtones of licorice and toasted oak linger on the long finish. This is a generous, enveloping wine but it needs a few years in bottle to fully come together. Anticipated maturity: 2010-2024.
