Swiss couple Brigitte and Bruno Widmer, with daughter Barbara, run this property better than clockwork and, in two decades, have firmly established Brancaia as one of Tuscany’s leading estates. The vineyards at Poppi (Radda) and Brancaia (Castellina) are on ideal hillside locations at 230-400 metres above sea level, planted to 6000 vines per hectare on lean, stony, calcareous soil to naturally produce a low yield.

A selection of their best Sangiovese, with 20% Merlot, matured in barriques (half new) for 16 months, followed by 6 months in the bottle. Loaded with perfumed juicy fruit, this is a rich and ripe style that will benefit from some time in a decanter to allow the dark berry fruit to shine through the French oak polish.
