The 2017 Il Blu is fabulous. Inky, vibrant and beautifully layered in the glass, the 2017 marries richness with vibrancy, showing remarkable balance and so much class. Lavender, spice, chocolate, menthol and licorice are all woven into a core of inky blue/purplish fruit. Despite the warm, hot growing season, in 2017 Il Blu retains a mid-weight personality as well as a good deal of energy.

PRODUCER

Brancaia’s SuperTuscan ‘Il Blu’ made its debut with the 1988 vintage and has since garnered 11 Gambero Rosso Tre Bicchieri. Beginning with the 2013 vintage, the blend has changed a little to include more Merlot and is now 70% Merlot, 25% Sangiovese and 5% Cabernet Sauvignon. The wine is aged 20 months in barriques (2/3 new) and is dripping with dark plum and cherry fruit with chocolate and spice, the palate full bodied with velvety tannins. Its a style of wine that drinks well right out of the gate but cellars for 10-15 years. Sensational wine - sensational package.
