BLU perfectly embodies Brancaia's identity and our vision, based on respect for the environment and the search for the highest quality without compromise. Matured in French barriques (two-thirds new) for 20 months and at least one year in the bottle. With fine tannins and a lingering finish, Il BLU is a wine of great structure, which fascinates with its complexity and elegance. Over the past 30 years, this wine has not only become a symbol for Brancaia, it has become a classic for wine lovers all over the world.
Dense ruby red.
The nose is extremely elegant with scents of wild fruits and cherry chocolate, licorice and Caribbean cedar, sweet tobacco, mint and tones of roasting.
The taste is harmonious, rich in structure and furrowed by precise and well-dissolved tannins. Long finish.
