Brancaia Chianti Classico Riserva 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 barriques - half of them are new - and matures for a few months in the bottle, prior to release.

We had it with a birthday cake. I had it with my friends at home.
Strawberry red colour. Scent of violets and liquorice. This Brancaia Chianti Classico Riserva seemed fairly fresh.
