Review

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.

On the palate it is striking for its dynamism and minerality, its complex and multifaceted flavour, for its freshness that goes hand in hand with a gentle but obvious tannin, which is soft but still pulsing. The finish is fruity, and seemingly bitterish, with retronasal notes of Mediterranean maquis, thus confirming its easy-to-drink and inviting nature.

Food pairing

Pasta with bolognese sauce / Arrosto di vitello / Arrosto di manzo al ginepro / Barbecues / Piatti speziati

Du Chianti de rêve

Très belle bouteille de Chianti, décidément l'oenologue Barbara Widmer sait y faire ! Tanins très agréables et parfums magnifiques.

Chianti clasico que no te puedes perder

Un buen vino tinto de bodegas brancaia con DO Toscana con Cabernet Sauvignon y Merlot de 2016, y con grado slcoholico de 14 grados. En nariz frutos rojos y negros maduros, en boca decido y paso largo. En resumen un Chianti clasico revomendado

A découvrir

Du fruit. De la puissance et de la longueur en bouche. Un excellent rapport qualité / prix.

cherry, violets & herbs

The price price to quality ratio for this wine is phenomenal. Tastes of cherry, violets and herb. Others at dinner tastes slight hints of vanilla. Would buy again. Decanted for 1hr.

Is ok

For me, I just didnt enjoy the taste so much - not as delicious as I was hoping - maybe/probably just me.

Brancaia

Young oenologist Barbara Widmer has taken over the reins of a winery from her father Bruno.

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