Alcohol By Volume Guide
Most wine ranges from 10-16% alcohol by volume. Some varietals tend to have higher (for example Zinfandel and Cabernet Sauvignon) or lower alcohol levels (Pinot Noir and many white varietals), but there is always some variation from producer to producer. Some wine falls outside of this range, for instance Port weighs in closer to 20%, while Muscat and Riesling are usually a bit below 10%.
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
"A pleasing wine with juicy berry and plum character with hints of peaches and chocolate. Medium to light body, with fine tannins and a fresh finish. Savory. A blend as always of Sangiovese, Merlot and Cabernet Sauvignon."
"(roughly 80% sangiovese, the rest cabernet sauvignon and merlot): Deep ruby. Dark berry and cassis on the nose, with complicating notes of anise, vanillin oak and violet. Sappy, open-knit dark fruit flavors show nice clarity and lift, with polished, smooth tannins adding shape to the long, sweet finish. This easygoing, fruit-driven wine is already drinking well."
International Wine Cellar
"The 2010 Tre is laced with dark red berries, flowers, licorice and a hint of smoke. This is a decidedly medium-bodied wine built on length and energy rather than the richness for which Maremma generally is known. Floral notes reappear on the finish, adding lift and a sense of harmony. The 2010 is 80% Sangiovese, 10% Merlot and 10% Cabernet Sauvignon. "
Vinous / Antonio Galloni
"Bright and juicy, offering cherry, raspberry and floral flavors. Balanced on an elegant profile, with a hint of licorice on the finish. Sangiovese, Merlot and Cabernet Sauvignon. Best from 2013 through 2018."
