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

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

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.

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.

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
