Details for Brancaia Chianti Classico Riserva 2016
Bottle size and vintage
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.by: Wim Ubachs (29/11/2017) - Vintage 2013
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.by: firstname.lastname@example.org (28/09/2017) - Vintage 2013
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.by: Louis (28/01/2019) - Vintage 2013

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.

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