Brancaia Tre 2006

Posted by

Brancaia is a Tuscan producer with an interesting array of proprietary blends including the illustrious “blu”. The Tre – a blend of sangiovese, merlot, and cabernet sauvignon – is their entry level wine and I suppose could be equated to a Rosso or a basic Chianti with its nose of herbs, forward spicy underbrush, cherry fruit and a bit of earth. This wine is surely made for easy drinking with its very soft, almost plush, palate of cherry, blackberry, earth and spice. Overall, simple, pleasant, balanced, but boring – very boring. Unfortunately, in the end I think this is not worth the money and doesn’t taste like much more than a decent Chianti Classico.

$30 ($23 on sale) at BCLDB
