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.

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.

Three B's, Four Stars

Easy to memorize, Brancaia stands for three B's: Berries, Body and Balanced. I love this Chianti Classico Riserva with it's dense tannins and long finish. You can drink it now, but maybe better to be a bit more patient and give it a little more aging.

Great value chianti classico riserva

Hard to find better value chianti classico reserva. Very typical chianti with sour cherry and red fruit flavours. Goof balance of tannins, acidity and alcohol. Could have more complexity but for the money it is a perfect every day chianti.

Très bon Chianti, valeur sûre.

Très bon Chianti, valeur sûre avec un rapport qualité / plaisir / prix plutôt correct. Concentré tout en conservant beaucoup de finesse.

une belle expression de la région

une petit peu de merlot vient adoucir la vivacité du Sangiovese, vin equilibré et arômatiquement en accord avec la région, c'est une belle bouteille à prix d'ami.



Young oenologist Barbara Widmer has taken over the reins of a winery from her father Bruno. The winery, bought by the family in 1981 when it was still an abandoned farmhouse, is today among the most consistent and reliable in Chianti, with a clear international inclination, but never at the expense of territoriality and traditional appellations. With highly sustainable viticulture, Barbara's vigour and dynamism equals her love for the territory. Active on particularly hete...
