Large formats have always been a passion of ours. You honestly cannot beat the look of a magnum or two on a table at a party. Let us have a look at our newest addition to the family.
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.

A rich, full-bodied, ruby color catches the eye, a gorgeous bouquet of ripe cherries and coffee draws you in, and a silky soft texture brings you back. This Tuscan red blend has the bombast necessary to entertain a large gathering, and an intriguing complexity for the more thoughtful sipper.
Not one for the faint of heart as you can see. Don't miss out on this absolutely stunning super Tuscan. Cheers!
