    "Il Blu" Rosso Toscana IGT 2016 <br>Double-MAGNUM in OWC

    Impenetrable, bright ruby red with an aromatic play of redcurrants and blueberries and fine toasty notes. The soft, balanced body offers a perfect interplay between the excellent tannin structure and the alcohol component. In the highly convincing final a clear, very pleasant spiciness is noticeable. SUPERIORE.DE

    "Deep dark ruby with purple. In the nose it shows pronounced notes of smoke and wet stones, behind this a lot of blackberry and plum. Dense and full on the palate, at the same time a lot of juicy fruit, opens with gripping tannin, spans a wide arc." Falstaff

    "A bright, tension-filled style, offering blackberry, black currant, iron, tar and rosemary aromas and flavors. The tannins are formidable yet refined, with sweet, ripe fruit returning on the finish." Wine Spectator

    "Tight and firm with very pretty dark fruit and earth character. Medium to full body, silky tannins and a fresh finish. A blend of sangiovese, merlot and cabernet sauvignon." James Suckling

    "Brancaia's Il Blu is gorgeous in 2016. Fresh, perfumed and beautifully lifted, the 2016 strikes a captivating balance between power and finesse. Red cherry, flowers, mint, cinnamon and blood orange all give the 2016 brightness and vitality, and yet there is plenty of the richness readers have come to expect from this wine as well. The 2016 is one of the more polished, nuanced vintages of Brancaia I can remember tasting." Vinous

    "This blend has one of the most impressive track records of a modern Tuscan blend that I can think of. The 2016 Il Blu is a beautifully balanced and precise blend that pits the freshness and authenticity of Sangiovese against the softness and fruitiness of the Merlot. Although the Sangiovese plays a supporting role in the blend, its influence and signature go far to creating the overall identity of this special wine. It's a very nice effort to celebrate with a grilled T-bone." Robert Parker
