Buy Brancaia Tre Toscana
Ultimate Beverage Challenge 89 points - The nose begins with bright raspberry jam and distinct herbaceous and leather notes. The palate is juicy but not unwieldy, with rich cherry, red currant, slight plum, and a hint of earth before a long, smooth finish.  (Jun 2016)

James Suckling 92 points - Lots of vivid spice, meat and dark berry fruit. Full body, fine tannins and bright acidity. Better than the 2012. Drink now.  (Aug 2015)

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 Tuscany’s leading wineries, receiving important national and international awards every year. The wines are successfully sold worldwide.
