Wine Advocate 89 points - The 2009 Chianti Classico Riserva is a relatively subdued wine for Brancaia. Sweet dark cherries, menthol, smoke and licorice are some of the nuances that flesh out in this supple, attractive Chianti. The 2009 is the first Riserva Brancaia has made. The blend is 80% Sangiovese and 20% Merlot. Anticipated maturity: 2012-2021. (Jun 2012)

In the glass the wine displays a deep cherry color core that is almost opaque and bordered by a narrow dark pink rim. On the nose the aromas are pronounced cedar wood/cigar box with some hints of earthy mushroom and sweet leather in the background. On the palate the wine is dry, medium-bodied, mouth-watering acidity along with a medium level of firm tannins. Rhwe flavors lean towards black cherry that is not overly ripe but with a pleasurable hint of sweetness. There also are hints of black licorice, cedar and a very subtle bitter-sweet/bakerís chocolate note. The finish is clean with a medium length of lingering flavors similar to the palate.
Producer
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 Tuscanyís leading wineries, receiving important national and international awards every year. The wines are successfully sold worldwide.
