2018 Brancaia Chianti Classico Riserva Tuscany
Winemaker Notes: 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.
This wine pairs perfectly alongside grilled meat, roast or braised beef and veal, stewed dishes, grilled fish and pasta dishes with strong tasting sauces.
Blend: 80% Sangiovese, 20% Merlot
James Suckling - "This is absolutely delicious with cherry, berry and light milk chocolate. It’s medium-bodied with round tannins. Juicy and succulent. Racy and deep. Bright acidity. Give this time to open. Better after 2023."
Wine Enthusiast - "Made with 80% Sangiovese and 20% Merlot, this offers aromas of cassis, espresso and toasted oak. The medium-bodied palate features cherry marinated in spirits, roasted coffee bean and licorice alongside dusty tannins. Drink 2023–2028."
