Brancaia, Il Blu, Rosso Toscana, Tuscany, Italy, 2011
Platinum: Best Red Tuscany
50% Sangiovese, 45% Merlot, 5% Cabernet Sauvignon
Pretty, complex floral aromas with dried cherry and cranberry notes and hints of chocolate. Dry on the palate, with refreshingly crisp acidity and substantial, perfectly-judged tannins amidst plenty of flesh. The finish is both long and harmonious.
