Brancaia Supertuscan Blend Toscana IGT Il Blu 2007

Winemaker's Notes:

The estate’s 2007 Il Blu is a dark sweeping Tuscan red graced with exquisite dark black cherries, new leather, licorice, spices and minerals. The 2007 comes across as one of the more open vintages of Il Blu in recent memory. Some of the structure of the superb 2006 is missing, but the 2007 more than compensates with its seductive fruit and opulent, polished finish. Il Blu is Sangiovese and Merlot with a dash of Cabernet Sauvignon that spent 20 months in French oak. Anticipated maturity: 2015-2025...94" WA 05/10
