Brancaia in Chianti Classico, encompassing the two estates Brancaia and Poppi, has been owned by the Swiss couple Brigitte and Bruno Widmer since 1981. Barbara and Martin Kronenberg-Widmer run the winery together which is located in the heart of the Chianti Classico area.
The estate had a vertical take-off when it’s vintage 1983 won first place at a major Chianti Classico tasting. Since then, through uncompromising dedication to quality and a strong own identity, the continuous recognition of Brancaia has been built up. Spearheaded by the estate’s top wine the Supertuscan Brancaia Il Blu, it has earned worldwide acclaim gaining a reputation as a classic for many wine lovers all over the world.
Brancaia IL BLU is distinguished for its elegance, complexity and intensity. It is a blend of 50% Sangiovese, 45% Merlot and 5% Cabernet Sauvignon. The wine ages 20 months in French barriques - 2/3 of them are new - and then matures 12 months in the bottle, prior to release.
