Brancaia Rosé is an expression of the winery’s innovation. Produced with 100% Merlot grapes, after fermentation the Brancaia “Toscano Rosè IGT” rests for three months on its lees in steel tanks. Elegant and fruity aromas combined with a fresh and drinkable taste. It is perfect with light meals and for happy hour.
The color has a pale pink with some nuances reminiscent of onion skin. The bouquet ranges from hints of berries and raspberry, followed by cinnamon and spices. The taste is characterized by good acidity and rich persistence.
Brancaia’s history is relatively recent. It dates back to the early eighties when the Swiss couple Brigitte and Bruno Widmer fell in love with the Chianti hills and decided to buy an abandoned farm just outside Castellina in Chianti: Brancaia.
The success of the wines of this estate was almost immediate and hence the need to invest in nearby Radda in Chianti, in the locality of Poppi and subsequently also in Maremma not far from the Tuscan coast.
The passion of the Widmer family was soon transmitted to their daughter Barbara who, after studying oenology, personally follows and directs the company.
The identity of Brancaia wines is very precise. Its fans appreciate it for the well-ripened fruit and the cleanliness of the aromas, the delicacy of the sip, always present in its simpler wines and the important structure in its more ambitious wines.
