Leather, cassis, wild thyme. Notes of green mint and sandalwood as well Polished with muscular yet supple tannins. Retronasal flavours of iron, dry blood with tuscan tobacco. Lingering aftertaste.

A perennial winner. Fabulous notes of cedar, dried and fresh dark berry, woodsmoke, hung meat, and herb. 90 Points. (ottawawinejournal.com)
Brancaia Tre (2013) is a full-bodied and robust Italian red wine blend of 80% Sangiovese, 20% Cabernet and Merlot grapes all grown in the Chianti Classico and Maremma regions. "Tre" is for the three-grape blend and for the winery's three Tuscan estates. - Community Wine Reviews
