Brancaia Chianti Classico Riserva (750ml)
You’ll find Brancaia in the heart of Tuscany’s Chianti Classico area, encompassing three estates: Brancaia (Castellina), Poppi (Radda) and Brancaia in Maremma (Grosseto). Brancais has been owned and operated by Swiss couple Brigitte and Bruno Widmer since 1981. The estate came to instant fame with its outstanding 1983 Chianti Classico. Since then, through uncompromising dedication to quality, Brancaia’s wines continue to stand out and command the attention and praise of Tuscan wine lovers and international wine critics. In addition to their powerful Chianti Classico, they produce a range of Supertuscans that have garnered cult status.
The Brancaia Chianti Classico Riserva is a fat, opulent Chianti loaded with perfumed, juicy fruit. The wine blossoms on the palate with tons of generosity and an undeniably appealing personality.
The blend is 80% Sangiovese and 20% Merlot, and the wine is aged in medium toast barrique (both new and neutral) for 16 months.
