    May 29, 2018 - All the berries in the bowl! Red, blue, black, and on and on. Thick and chewy this one. Spice and mineral are there, too. Tannins are all smoothed out and give it a finish for days and days.

    January 12, 2017 - 2003 BRANCAIA IL BLU TOSCANA- 50% Sangiovese, 45% Merlot, 5% Cabernet Sauvignon; fabulous enticement comes from the aromas which include spicy, cedar inundated dark fruit followed by a taste profile of generous portions of cranberry, cherry, berry expressed in a full body and over a long finish; it is big, bold and powerful with enough finesse to soften the thrust; there`s some obvious firm tannins that are nearing integration; this has serious complexity and concentration.

    December 14, 2015 - Decanted for 1 hour before consuming.
    The wine looks garnet colored. The legs are medium. There is light sediment in the bottle. The body is medium.

    August 25, 2015 - Frukt och fräschör kvar efter tio år. Rätt strama tanniner och en stjälkig beska gör att man vill ha rött kött och gräddig gratäng till detta.
