Wine Advocate Review
The 2019 Chianti Classico Riserva is an organic blend of 80% Sangiovese and 20% Merlot. I can't say enough good things about Barbara Widmer and her winemaking efforts in this wild and forested corner of Radda in Chianti. Her wines always express clarity and focus, and this is especially clear in a mid-range product like this. This vintage offers more concentration and darkness for sure, followed by blackberry and wild plum. There is oaky cinnamon and sweet spice at the back. Drink 2022-2035.
Wine Tasting Notes
Brancaia Chianti Classico Riserva DOCG is produced from the best Sangiovese grapes from Brancaia and Poppi and then blended with a touch of Merlot. The wine ages 16 months in French oak barrels - half of them are new - and matures for a few months in the bottle, prior to release.
