Wine Spectator: 96
"The aromas leave me speechless, with freshly cut roses and lilacs that follow through to crushed blackberry and cherry undertones. Full-bodied but extremely balanced, with velvety yet caressing tannins and a finish that goes on for minutes. Sangiovese, Merlot and Cabernet Sauvignon." (Oct 2006)

 

Wine Advocate: 94
"Consulting oenologist Carlo Ferrini oversees winemaking at Brancaia, which owns vineyards in the Chianti Classico and Morellino di Scansano zones. The 2004 Il Blu is a blend of 50% Sangiovese, 45% Merlot and 5% Cabernet Sauvignon that spent 20 months in French oak barrels. Its gorgeous, silky texture opens to reveal layers of vibrant sweet fruit that caress the palate in a captivating display of elegance and finesse. The tannins are ripe and sweet making it a very pleasurable wine even at this young stage, but it is sure to come together even more with another few years of bottle age. I have long been a fan of this estate and the 2004 Il Blu may very well be the finest wine yet from Brancaia." (Jun 2007)
