Chianti Classico - IGT Toscana

With very fine tannins and a lingering finish, Il BLU is a wine of great structure, captivating by its complexity and elegance.

Perfect to drink now, improves with time up to 20 years

Grapes: 80% Merlot, 10% Sangiovese, 10% Cabernet Sauvignon Recommended pairings: Intensely flavoured dishes, game, roasted or stewed red meats Over the past 30 years, this wine has not only become a symbol for Brancaia, but it has also earned unanimous praise from the public and critics alike, becoming a classic for wine lovers around the world. “… is the wine that put Brancaia on the map of Tuscany’s most celebrated producers” (Robert Parker). IL BLU is made from the strictest selection of the best Chianti Classico grapes. It is aged in French barriques (two-thirds new) for 18 months, then 3 months in cement, and finally for at least one year in the bottle. The history of Brancaia began in 1980 when the Widmer family, of Swiss origin, bought the Podere Brancaia in Castellina in Chianti as a summer residence in Tuscany. Bruno and Brigitte Widmer decided to produce only wines of the highest quality. What began as a hobby then, has grown steadily over the past 40 years to become one of the most important wineries in Tuscany. Brancaia loves and deeply respects the traditions of the past, but at the same time is not afraid to imagine new and modern approaches and organic viticulture has always been central for Brancaia.

After the order we prepare it in 24-48 hours and shipping within Europe usually takes 3 to 5 days if all products are available.

If a product is listed in the cart as “Available on backorder” the timing increases by 48h because we have to receive it from the manufacturer itself.

Our priority is to pack and ship the products as safely as possible. Wine and oil bottles are shipped with special cardboard protections, there will be no breakages.

All cold cuts and cheeses are vacuum sealed. In summer we also use dry ice and coolers to keep products fresh and their quality intact.
