Winemaker's Notes:

Brancaia Tre is a wine full of character giving you drinking pleasure already at the moment of release. Tre stands for the three grape varieties (Sangiovese, Merlot and Cabernet Sauvignon) and for Brancaia's three Tuscan estates - the basis for this wine. This elegant and well structured wine ages in oak casks, is easily accessible and matches every cuisine. Tre is is also Brancaia's third label, so they have three good reasons to name it Brancaia Tre.

Blend: 80% Sangiovese, 20% Merlot and Cabernet Sauvignon
