Brancaia’s Chianti Classico Riserva is made from the estate’s best Sangiovese grapes. This medium to full-bodied wine shows the elegance and charm of this classic Tuscan grape variety and reveals a finesse that certainly does justice to this historical denomination. Aromas such as cherry, spices, leather and chocolate harmonize perfectly with each other. The Sangiovese matures in tonneaux for 16 months, while the Merlot is matured in barriques. The cuvée matures in the bottle for at least another year after bottling.
Grape: Sangiovese, Merlot
Appellation: Chianti Classico DOCG
Tasting: Intense, medium to full-bodied wine. Long bouquet of cherry, black fruit and a continuum of spice, leather, tar and tilled earth. The mouthfeel is equal parts structured, fresh and succulent.
