The vineyards at Poppi (Radda) and Brancaia (Castellina) are on ideal hillside locations at 230-400 metres above sea level, planted to 6000 vines per hectare on lean, stony, calcareous soil to naturally produce a low yield.
In 2021 Il Blu celebrates its 30th year. One of the trail blazing SuperTuscans, it’s the wine that put
Brancaia on the map. Today the blend has changed a little to be 80% Merlot with 10% each of
Sangiovese and Cabernet. Il Blu is rich with inky dark red-blue fruits and notes of chocolate, liquorice and spice. The tannins are smooth and silky and the wine has an impeccable track record of cellaring 15-20 years years. Sensational wine and sensational package.
