Winemaker Notes

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.

Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
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.

Wine Enthusiast
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.

Brancaia Winery Video

Founded by Swiss couple Brigitte and Bruno Widmer in the famed hillsides of Tuscany more than 30 years ago, Brancaia is the modern face of luxury Italian wine. Rooted in the bold Super Tuscan movement that forever changed Italy’s winemaking culture, the wines of Brancaia blend classic Italian grapes with international varieties, bringing a decidedly modern touch to a centuries-old wine region.

Today the winery is still family owned and operated, led by the Widmers’ daughter, winemaker Barbara Widmer. Barbara has excelled at perfecting the style and quality of Brancaia wines by producing elegant, complex wines with a strong Tuscan identity.

Legendary in Italy for its Renaissance art and striking landscape, Tuscany is also home to many of the country’s best red wines. Sangiovese reigns supreme here, as either the single varietal, or a dominant player, in almost all of Tuscany’s best.

A remarkable Chianti, named for its region of origin, will have a bright acidity, supple tannins and plenty of cherry fruit character. From the hills and valleys surrounding the medieval village of Montalcino, come the distinguished and age-worthy wines based on Brunello (Sangiovese). Earning global acclaim since the 1970s, the Tuscan Blends are composed solely of international grape varieties or a mix of international and Sangiovese. The wine called Vine Nobile di Montepulciano, composed of Prognolo Gentile (Sangiovese) and is recognized both for finesse and power.
