90+/100 Punkte Robert Parker Dec 30, 2016 The 2014 Chianti Classico is a beautiful wine with sharp focus and brightness. The wine is loaded with energy and verve. Despite the negative comments you hear about this vintage, this wine demonstrates that hard work and careful fruit selection can make the difference. This base Chianti Classico is composed of 100% Sangiovese. Brancaia is best known for its excellent results with international grape varieties, but they have no problem making first-rate Sangiovese as well.
93/100 Punkte Wine Spectator Sep 30, 2017 A lush, concentrated style, this red boasts plum, cassis, tobacco and spice flavors. Fresh and pure, with a dose of serious oak. Mouthcoating tannins and spice notes line the finish. Cabernet Sauvignon, Petit Verdot and Cabernet Franc. Best from 2019 through 2028.
93/100 Punkte James Suckling Aug 28, 2017 This is a very well done red from the vintage with blackberry, dark currant and hints of rose petal aromas and flavors. Medium to full body, very fine texture and a pretty finish. Very fine for the vintage. Drink or hold.
