Il Blu 2016

Brancaia’s SuperTuscan ‘Il Blu’ made its debut with the 1988 vintage and has since garnered 11 Gambero Rosso Tre Bicchieri. Beginning with the 2013 vintage, the blend has changed a little to include more Merlot and is now 70% Merlot, 25% Sangiovese and 5% Cabernet Sauvignon. The wine is aged 20 months in barriques (2/3 new) and is dripping with dark plum and cherry fruit with chocolate and spice, the palate full bodied with velvety tannins. Its a style of wine that drinks well right out of the gate but cellars for 10-15 years. Sensational wine - sensational package.
