Brancaia Il Blu 2008

Brancaia Il Blu 750ml 2008     
Sku: 20367

Brancaia IL BLU is distinguished for its elegance, complexity and intensity. It is a blend of 50% Sangiovese, 45% Merlot and 5% Cabernet Sauvignon. The wine ages 20 months in French barriques - 2/3 of them are new - and then matures 12 months in the bottle, prior to release.

Rating
 Wine Advocate 90 points (Aug 2011)
The 2008 Il Blu hits the palate with a blast of dark fruit but then loses much of its intensity on the mid-palate. Dark red fruit and flowers linger on the finish. The 2008 shows good balance but is a far cry from some of the recent vintages that have been superb. This mid-weight, accessible Il Blu is best enjoyed in its youth. Anticipated maturity: 2013-2018. ”
