Brancaia ‘Ilatraia’ Rosso 2010

TUSCANY | ITALY | $48
Rich blackberry and red currant with sage and bay herbal notes, licorice, cedar, organic soil, iron minerals and a hint of smoke. Slightly gamey with deep fruit flavors and an extraordinary lingering finish. Decant or give this some time in the glass to open up, and you’ll be rewarded with a complex, thoughtful and well-integrated wine. This charmer conveys a sence of the old world in every nuance, instilling confidence and trust, and yet he is youthful, in the present, unmistakenly contemporary — if you will, a hipster, indeed. A Super Tuscan blend of Cabernet Sauvignon, Petit Verdot and Cabernet Franc. A very good wine. Wine provided by Wine Chateau. (Reviewed 1/5/14)

  1. We also sell their yellow and blue label Brancaia at Whole Foods. All 3 are very nice wines.
    Thank you!
