    Winemaker's Notes:

    Brancaia Chianti Classico Riserva shows tropical and black fruit aromas, with notes of nut and almond on the palate. Crafted with the finest Sangiovese grapes from two of the estate vineyards, Brancaia Estate and Poppi Vineyard, this wine has a dense, ruby-red color and a long, aromatic finish.

    Blend: 80% Sangiovese, 20% Merlot

    Critical Acclaim:

    Brancaia definitely makes the short list of Tuscany’s most admired wine estates. This riserva is tightly packed with delicate aromas ranging from berry fruit to cigar box to blue flower. The whole ensemble shows beautiful restraint and balance.

    This dark, dense red shows black cherry and black currant flavors, with touches of bittersweet chocolate, accented by tobacco and tea notes. Tight and long, with the power to match a bistecca Fiorentina or wild boar. Best from 2014 through 2023.
