Discover Brancaia Il Blue 750ml:

Brancaia Il Blue is a full-bodied Italian red wine made from a blend of Sangiovese, Cabernet Sauvignon, and Merlot grapes. This wine is produced in the Chianti Classico region of Tuscany, Italy, and is aged for 12 months in French oak barrels. The result is a complex and balanced wine with intense aromas of ripe red fruits, spices, and hints of vanilla. On the palate, Brancaia Il Blue is smooth and velvety, with flavors of blackberry, cherry, and plum, as well as notes of tobacco, leather, and earth. The finish is long and lingering, with a pleasant hint of oak. Brancaia Il Blue is an excellent choice for pairing with grilled meats, pasta dishes, and aged cheeses.

Critical Acclaim

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.

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.

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. Rating: 94+

Discover Blended Red Wine Wines

In the United States, a red mix is any American wine that isn't produced from a single grape type. It's an odd classification since many, if not all, red wines are and have always been mixes. A grand cru Bordeaux produced entirely of Cabernet, as well as Chiantis made entirely of Sangiovese, are the exception rather than the norm. In addition, California law only requires a wine's label to contain 75% of the grape type.

Winemakers combine grapes because it enables them to create a wine in a sense. A splash of Merlot may help soften Cabernet's tannins, while a dash of Syrah can give watery, inexpensive Pinot some punch. Blending is common in several regions: Rioja, for example, has traditionally blended Tempranillo, Graciano, and Garnacha. Many modern, inexpensive red blends, on the other hand, are simply created for mass appeal—lots of superripe, black fruit and no acidity—using whatever varietals would suffice.

Discover Red Wine Wines

Red wine is a popular alcoholic beverage that is enjoyed by many people around the world. It is made from red grapes and is known for its rich, complex flavors and aromas. There are many different varieties of red wine, each with its own unique characteristics and taste. Some of the most popular varieties of red wine include Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Pinot Noir, Shiraz, and Zinfandel.

Cabernet Sauvignon is one of the most popular varieties of red wine. It is known for its full-bodied flavor and high tannin content. This wine is often aged in oak barrels, which gives it a rich, smoky flavor. Some of the most famous brands of Cabernet Sauvignon include Chateau Montelena, Silver Oak, and Caymus Vineyards.

Merlot is another popular variety of red wine. It is known for its soft, fruity flavor and low tannin content. This wine is often blended with other varieties of red wine to create a more complex flavor. Some of the most famous brands of Merlot include Duckhorn Vineyards, Stags' Leap Winery, and Chateau Ste. Michelle.

Pinot Noir is a lighter-bodied red wine that is known for its delicate, fruity flavor. It is often aged in oak barrels, which gives it a subtle smoky flavor. Some of the most famous brands of Pinot Noir include Domaine de la Romanee-Conti, Kistler Vineyards, and Williams Selyem.

Shiraz, also known as Syrah, is a full-bodied red wine that is known for its spicy, peppery flavor. It is often aged in oak barrels, which gives it a rich, smoky flavor. Some of the most famous brands of Shiraz include Penfolds, Henschke, and Torbreck.

Zinfandel is a bold, fruity red wine that is known for its high alcohol content. It is often aged in oak barrels, which gives it a rich, smoky flavor. Some of the most famous brands of Zinfandel include Ridge Vineyards, Turley Wine Cellars, and Seghesio Family Vineyards.

Red wine is a great drink for many reasons. For one, it is rich in antioxidants, which can help to reduce the risk of heart disease and other health problems. Additionally, red wine is a great way to unwind after a long day. It has a relaxing effect on the body and can help to reduce stress and anxiety. Finally, red wine is a great way to socialize with friends and family. It is often enjoyed with food and can be a great way to bring people together.
