Quick Overview

Intense ruby red color with garnet hues. Complex on the nose, with aromas of iris, violet and soft oaky notes. Sapid to taste, excellent acidity, which gives this Cru character and elegance. Robust finish, and aftertaste that reflects the aromas. A great expression of the Brolio marine deposit terroir.

Barone Ricasoli 'Roncicone' 2015


The soil of the vineyard of the same name consists of marine deposits of Pliocene origin, with the presence of sandy deposits and stones smoothed by the sea, while lower down there is clay. Good organic matter content. Marine fossils and lignite emerge on the surface. The slopes are gentle and the vineyard is located in the central part of the property, to the south of the clayey-limestone soils. The growing season 2014/2015 was quite regular without extreme events. Winter was mild with temperatures falling to freezing only at the end of December and in January and February. Spring was also regular. Although a little cold at the beginning, temperatures began to rise and were average afterwards. May and June were warm favoring a perfect flowering and veraison. Rainfall was not excessive, about 150 mm. Summer began earlier, with high temperatures already at the end of June when we recorded peaks of even 34?35 °C (93.2?95°F). July was also particularly warm, above all in the first decade, with peaks of even 40°C (104°F). Rainfall was scarce (about 100 mm, but the good water supplies during the winter and spring months prevented drought stress. September and October showed perfect weather conditions, with significant day?to?night temperature ranges, favoring the accumulation of color and polyphenols in the grapes.
