2004 Brancaia "Il Blu" Rosso di Toscano

SKU #1026214 96 points Wine Spectator

Outer quote mark The aromas leave me speechless, with freshly cut roses and lilacs that follow through to crushed blackberry and cherry undertones. Full-bodied but extremely balanced, with velvety yet caressing tannins and a finish that goes on for minutes. *Top 100 Wines of 2006, Highly Recommended* Inner quote mark (10/2006)

94 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Outer quote mark Consulting oenologist Carlo Ferrini oversees winemaking at Brancaia, which owns vineyards in the Chianti Classico and Morellino di Scansano zones. The 2004 Il Blu is a blend of 50% Sangiovese, 45% Merlot and 5% Cabernet Franc that spent 20 months in French oak barrels. Its gorgeous, silky texture opens to reveal layers of vibrant sweet fruit that caress the palate in a captivating display of elegance and finesse. The tannins are ripe and sweet making it a very pleasurable wine even at this young stage, but it is sure to come together even more with another few years of bottle age. I have long been a fan of this estate and the 2004 Il Blu may very well be the finest wine yet from Brancaia. (AG) Inner quote mark (6/2007)
