Barone Ricasoli

Ricasoli is the oldest winery in Italy and the second oldest in the world, according to Family Business, a leading American business magazine.

In 1141, Brolio Castle passed into the hands of the Ricasoli family, whose descendant, Baron Bettino Ricasoli developed the formula for their famed Chianti in 1872.

Today, Barone Ricasoli is the largest winery in the Chianti Classico area. Located in the communes of Gaiole and Castelnuovo Berardenga, it is surrounded by 1,200 hectares of valleys, hills, forests of oak and chestnut trees, 235 hectares of vines and 26 hectares of olive groves, all bathing in the changing weather and beauty of this central Chianti Region.

Francesco Ricasoli, Bettino’s great-grandson and 32nd Baron, has been at the helm of the family business since 1993, renewing the quality and personality that made Brolio wines famous by making the most of the land’s unique history. With many award-winning wines renowned worldwide, Barone Ricasoli’s research and exploration continue, as new labels are continually being developed that reinvent the culture of winemaking and the art of drinking.
