Brancaia IL BLU, IGT Rosso Toscana - the top product of BRANCAIA. This wine is intended to demonstrate the elegance, complexity and intensity that BRANCAIA is now capable of achieving. Many wine lovers around the world already consider it a classic - perhaps because it has established a distinctive identity throughout all its vintages, reflecting the character and quality of Brancaia's vineyards in the Chianti Classico.

Wine Spectator Notes : Offering a mix of black cherry, dark plum and spice flavors, this red combines power and fluidity. The tannins are assertive for now, but this remains fresh and intense on the long finish. Tobacco and mineral notes show on the finish. Sangiovese, Merlot and Cabernet Sauvignon. Best from 2017 through 2027.

Tasting Notes : 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.
