    Winemaker's Notes:

    The 2004 vintage of this wine was ranked #9 on the Wine Spectator's Top 10 Wines of 2006

    Brancaia IL BLU, IGT Rosso Toscana – the top-product from Brancaia. This IGT (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 in the Chianti Classico.

    Pair with: As a rule, food with pronounced taste, dark meat such as beef or lamb,roast or braised game.

    Critical Acclaim:

    Lovely blueberry and blackberry aromas lead to a full body, with supersilky tannins and a chocolate, blackberry and currant aftertaste. Very tight and attractive. Racy, balanced and seductive. Best after 2011.

    The estate's 2007 Il Blu is a dark sweeping Tuscan red graced with exquisite dark black cherries, new leather, licorice, spices and minerals. The 2007 comes across as one of the more open vintages of Il Blu in recent memory. Some of the structure of the superb 2006 is missing, but the 2007 more than compensates with its seductive fruit and opulent, polished finish. Il Blu is Sangiovese and Merlot with a dash of Cabernet Sauvignon that spent 20 months in French oak. Anticipated maturity: 2015-2025.
