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 our vineyards in the Chianti Classico. Perfect with dishes with strong flavor, dark meat such as beef or lamb.

A firm red with plenty of tannins that are polished and silky textured. Medium body, fresh and taught. Chocolate and Cedar combines nicely with the ripe fruit. Impressive blend of merlot, sangiovese and cabernet sauvignon. One of the best ever from here. Drinkable, but better in 2021

The 2013 Il Blu is truly an exceptional wine. This blend of 70% Merlot, 25% Sangiovese and 5% Cabernet Sauvignon pours from the bottle with midnight black intensity. The wine is luscious and loud in terms of its aromatic intensity but the effect is beautifully balanced all the while. The wine is streamlined and tight in the mouth but don't underestimate its length and persistence. The finish can be counted in many long heartbeats. Some 32,000 bottles were produced.

Blackberry, pomegranate, black currant, tar and mineral flavors are the hallmarks of this concentrated red. Still feels youthful and tannic, with time to give. Merlot, Sangiovese and Cabernet Sauvignon. Best from 2019 through 2030. 2,100 cases made.
