Chianti Classico

 

FRUITY FRESH

The Chianti Classico – the only Brancaia red wine that is made without wood – pays homage to our terroir. This single origin Sangiovese fascinates with its lightness and its fine cherry notes – typical Sangiovese aromas. After twelve months of aging in steel and cement, this wine offers great drinking pleasure at an early age. It is a beautiful Chianti with a straightforwardness that is captivating. Here, too, we like to let Monica Larner (Robert Parker) have a say. She wrote about Chianti Classico 2014: “Brancaia is primarily known for its excellent results with international grape varieties, but it also manages to produce first-class Sangiovese.”

Ideal with: cold cuts, cheese, pasta, poultry and grilled meats of all kinds. Our favorite: with pizza margherita with mozzarella di Bufala and fresh basil.
