House wine alert! Delicious, tremendous bargain. Manages to blend 20% Merlot and Cabernet Sauvignon in without losing its "Tuscan-ness".

A stylish Super Tuscan that is as modern as its label, Brancaia's 2014 Tre is a blend of 80% Sangiovese, 10% Merlot, and 10% Cabernet Sauvignon from all three of the winery's estate vineyards. It's softly textured on the nose and palate, a basket of freshly harvested, sun-warmed Italian plums and black cherries infused with thyme blossoms. The palate is plush and generous, with ripe tannins and a core of black fruit enlivened by a burst of acidity that leads into cedar and bay leaf. 13.5% ABV Sample | 89 Points

Medium to deep garnet red with bricking on the edges. Notes of dried cherries, light mushrooms and a touch dusty. Very dry with quite a bit of cherries on the palate with a little earthiness and metallic notes in the medium plus finish. Moderate tannins (6.5/10) and medium plus acidity. Medium bodied. Would be interested in the higher level bottlings. Drink now.

I am surprised at this - had with Halibut...worked perfect. What??!? Complex, bit of Brit, earth, fruits, not heavy, but completely satisfying. Biggest shocker...synthetic cork. What??!?
