N° 2

PURE CABERNET

This varietal Cabernet Sauvignon is made exclusively from grapes from our vineyards in the Maremma and is therefore a representative of the relatively new appellation Maremma Toscana DOC. This medium to full-bodied wine impresses with its beautiful, blue fruit aromas and very soft tannins. The perfect combination of freshness and elegance makes this wine extremely charming and easily accessible. It matures for 12 months in tonneaux, which have been used before. Charming and fine on the nose, smooth and velvety on the palate, the Brancaia N ° 2 scores with a wonderful finish. N ° 2 is, as the name suggests, the little brother of our flagship wine from the Maremma, the Ilatraia. James Suckling writes about our 2016: “This dense and vibrant Cabernet from an excellent vintage shows a lot of currant and blackberry character. Fresh and clean. “

Ideal with: salami, spicy cheese and almost all red meats – braised, fried or grilled. Our favorite: with ossobuco with polenta.
