Winemaker Notes

Il Blu is an elegant, refined wine with lovely blueberry and blackberry aromas, leading to flavors of chocolate, blackberry and currant on the palate. Crafted with grapes from two of the estate vineyards, Brancaia Estate and Poppi Vineyard, this full-bodied blend has silky tannins and a long, lingering finish. Many wine lovers around the world already consider it a classic - perhaps because it has established a distinctive identity throughout all its vintages, reflecting the character and quality of our vineyards in the Chianti Classico. Blend: 70% Merlot, 25% Sangiovese, 5% Cabernet Sauvignon

94 Points - Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

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.

95 Points - James Suckling

The balance and beauty to this wine shows real Super Tuscan character. Aromas of flower, dark berry and licorice follow through to a full body, ultra-fine tannins and a flavorful and focused finish. A blend of cabernet sauvignon, merlot and sangiovese. Drink now or hold.

95 Points - Wine Spectator

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.
