Classification

IGT
Brancaia started life as a winery in 1981 when a Swiss couple fell in love with the abandoned Brancaia estate in Castelli Chianti and purchased it. Since that time the Brancai estate has grown to comprise three different estates; Castelli Chianti, the Poppi Estate in Radda Chianti and the Brancai Estate in Maremma.

The focus of the Brancaia team has always been committed to producing only the very best wines, quality is the principal aim not quantity.

An elegant and complex Super Tuscan that has gained extremely high praise since it`s first release in 1998, the 2000 vintage received 3 stars in the renowned Gambero Rosso.

The bouquet opens with floral, wild strawberry, blackberry and suede aromas tinged by a herbaceous edge. The palate is generous and intense with deep red and black berry fruit flavours, hints of mocha, damson and leather linger in the finish with savoury herbal notes & licorice.
