95 PTS – Decanter
"Mainly Sangiovese (80%), with Cabernet and Merlot making up the blend, this is a great red made from grapes harvested in Chianti Classico and Maremma. The nose shows prunes, cassis, sweet spice and cedar tones, while the glossy palate boasts red, black and blue berries plus pepper notes and dusty tannins. "

"Aromas of strawberry and berry character on nose. Full body, ultra-soft tannins and a silky finish. A beautiful and delicious wine."
Brancaia TRE is a wine full of character giving you drinking pleasure already at the moment of release. TRE stands for the three grape varieties Sangiovese, Merlot and Cabernet Sauvignon and for our three Tuscan estates - the basis for this wine. This elegant and well structured wine ages in oak casks, is easily accessible and matches every cuisine. TRE is our third label, so we have three good reasons to name it Brancaia TRE.
Blend: 80% Sangiovese, 20% Merlot and Cabernet Sauvignon

|It was in 1981, when the Swiss couple Brigitte and Bruno Widmer fell in love with the at the time abandoned Brancaia estate (Castellina in Chianti) and purchased it. Only two years later, Brancaia made the first rank in an important Chianti Classico tasting and then rapidly gained international recognition.
This lead to a continuous extension of the activities resulting in purchasing the Poppi estate (Radda in Chianti) in 1989, followed in 1998 by the founding of Brancaia in Maremma, only 10km from the Mediterranean coastline.
Since 1998 Barbara Widmer, oenologist and daughter of the founders, has been responsible for the winemaking as well as for the vineyards on all three estates - she thereby relies on the consultancy of the famous oenologist Carlo Ferrini.
Since 2002 Martin Kronenberg has directed the estates together with Barbara while being responsible for the management and the worldwide distribution.
Today BRANCAIA is one of Tuscany’s leading wineries, receiving important national and international awards every year. The wines are successfully sold worldwide.
