    Winemaker's Notes:

    The 2007 vintage of this wine was ranked #10 on the Wine Spectator's Top 10 Wines of 2009

    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 our 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 our third label, so we have three good reasons to name it Brancaia TRE.

    Critical Acclaim:

    The 2008 Tre is an attractive mid-weight red laced with dried cherries, dried flowers and spices. As is to be expected, the 2008 doesn’t have the plumpness and juiciness of the 2007, but it nevertheless delivers excellent balance in an approachable, mid-weight style. This looks to be an early drinking wine from Brancaia. Tre is 80% Sangiovese, 10% Merlot and 10% Cabernet Sauvignon sourced from the estate’s three wineries, all in Tuscany. Anticipated maturity: 2010-2013.

    Another good effort by Brancaia. Dark ruby red. Plum, spice, black berry and dark cherry on the nose. Dark fruit with a bit of smoke and spice on the palate. Nice wine.
