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. This is another highly successful line-up from Brancaia. The high-end 2006 reds are particularly of note. (AG)
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.
Fresh, focused aromas of currant, berry and hints of vanilla. Full-bodied, with medium chewy tannins and a rich milk chocolate and berry aftertaste. (JS)
