Tasting Notes and Scores

Wine Advocate
95

The 2006 Il Blu (50% Sangiovese, 45% Merlot, 5% Cabernet Sauvignon) is a striking wine loaded with vibrant dark cherries, violets, sweet spices and French oak in a powerful, structured style. Naturally the Blu doesn’t show the warmth of the Ilatraia but it does possess a touch more freshness and finesse, attributes which will allow the wine to age gracefully over the coming years. Once again, Brancaia has produced a gem in the Blu. Anticipated maturity: 2016-2026. AG

Fresh, focused aromas of currant, berry and hints of vanilla. Full-bodied, with medium chewy tannins and a rich milk chocolate and berry aftertaste. James Suckling
