Wine critics reviewsReviews by Suckling, Parker, Jancis Robinson, and Parker
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

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