Brancaia Tre 2013
Decanter"Mainly Sangiovese (80%), with Cabernet and Merlot making up the blend, this is a great red made from grapes harvested in Chianti Classico and Maremma. The nose shows prunes, cassis, sweet spice and cedar tones, while the glossy palate boasts red, black and blue berries plus pepper notes and dusty tannins."
James SucklingLots of vivid spice, meat and dark berry fruit. Full body, fine tannins and bright acidity. Better than the 2012. Drink now.
Wine SpectatorElegant, this red shows a hint of herbs to the black cherry and black currant fruit. Open and ready now. Sangiovese, Merlot and Cabernet Sauvignon. Drink now through 2018. 23,542 cases imported.
Wine AdvocateThe 2013 Tre is an informal blend of 80% Sangiovese, 10% Merlot and 10% Cabernet Sauvignon. This happy threesome offers bright fruit nuances with loads of cherry and dark fruit at the front. This is an easy-drinking red with a lean and crisp character that makes it an excellent pairing partner to pizza or cheesy pasta dishes.
Wine EnthusiastA blend of 80% Sangiovese with the remaining made up of Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot, this opens with aromas of black-skinned fruit and espresso. The straightforward palate offers black plum and clove alongside smooth tannins. Enjoy soon.
