Brancaia IL BLU, IGT Rosso Toscana – the top-product from Brancaia. This Supertuscan wants to prove what it is possible today at Brancaia in terms of elegance, complexity and intensity. For many wine lovers all over the world this wine is already a classic – perhaps also because through all vintages it shows a strong own identity, reflecting the character and level of our vineyards.
Pronounced flavors of currant, blackberry and milk
chocolate make this wine an ideal match for dark meats
such as beef, lamb or braised game.
"The 2006 Il Blu (50% Sangiovese, 45% Merlot, 5% Cabernet Sauvignon) is a striking wine loaded with vibrant dark cherries, violets, sweet spices and French oak in a powerful, structured style. Naturally the Blu doesn’t show the warmth of the Ilatraia but it does possess a touch more freshness and finesse, attributes which will allow the wine to age gracefully over the coming years. Once again, Brancaia has produced a gem in the Blu. Anticipated maturity: 2016-2026."
The Wine Advocate
"Brancaia's flagship wine is a lovely expression from Tuscany that stands apart thanks to the precision and sharp focus of its aromas. The wine (Sangiovese, Merlot and some Cabernet) is intense, persistent and boasts careful harmony especially in the mouth where it delivers delicate fruit nuances carried over by firm tannins and an extra-long finish."
