Brancaia Tre 2014
Entry level wines don't get better than this. The well-priced 2014 Tre is especially attractive and bright in this vintage. Made with 80% Sangiovese and 20% Merlot plus Cabernet Sauvignon, Tre shows lots of personality and moxie. The fruit is confident, crisp and bright. Aging in oak and concrete give the wine an edgy and mineral-driven feel.
This elegant version displays cherry and spice flavors, with an accent of tobacco on the finish. Modest tannins line the finish. Sangiovese, Merlot and Cabernet Sauvignon. Drink now through 2018. 12,600 cases imported.
With Merlot and Cabernet Sauvignon added to 80% Sangiovese, this wine has a restrained nose that eventually reveals black-skinned fruit and charred earth. The straightforward palate offers berry, clove and a confectionery note alongside smooth tannins. Enjoy soon.
