This red is sleek and focused, with blackberry, black currant and tobacco aromas and flavors that cut like a laser through the linear frame. Delivers fine harmony and a long finish. Best from 2020 through 2033. 2,100 cases made, 290 cases imported.

This is the wine that put Brancaia on the map of Tuscany's most celebrated estates. A blend of 70% Merlot, 25% Sangiovese and a smaller percentage of Cabernet Sauvignon (fermented with indigenous yeasts in conical steel vats and aged in new and neutral barrique for 20 months), the 2015 Il Blu is a wine that enthusiastically embraces the energy, heat and sunshine of the vintage. The fruit is dark and slightly sweet with aromas of black cherries and dried blackberries. Those flavors deliver rich, soft intensity. The wine is not quite full-bodied, because the mouthfeel is elegant and finessed, but it does deliver lasting power, freshness and polished tannins. Some 40,000 bottles were made.

The 2015 Il Blu is powerful, deep and fleshy with generous dark cherry, plum, mocha, new leather and spice overtones. In this vintage, Brancaia is quite open and approachable. Plush fruit and soft, inviting contours add to the wine's sheer appeal.

Aromas of mature dark-skinned fruit, bay leaf and toasted oak take center stage on this blend of 70% Merlot, 25% Sangiovese and 5% Cabernet Sauvignon. The dense palate delivers ripe black plum, clove and coconut alongside close-grained tannins.
