The wine

Profound and elegant, Brancaia's Chianti Classico Riserva is one of the most renowned and loved in the region. Of a beautiful clear shiny ruby red colour, the bouquet expresses scents of jammy blackberry and blueberry, red flowers, rose hip, and then cocoa, china and tobacco with liquorice balsamic and a fantastic undercurrent of dark spices.

The finish is fruity, and seemingly bitterish, with retronasal notes of Mediterranean maquis, thus confirming its easy-to-drink and inviting nature.

With highly sustainable viticulture, Barbara's vigour and dynamism equals her love for the territory. Active on particularly...
