Brancaia Tre 2016 from Tuscany

A proper red if you are in Tuscany mood.

Not pure Sangiovese, but tastes authentic for a Tuscan wine. Closed at opening, needs some air (and probably a bit of time in the bottle) to reveal it’s leathery, dried black cherry notes. Quite strong animalistic edge, probably not for everyone, but I don’t find it off-putting. It has some body, but it’s not too concentrated, seems to aim drinkability over weight. Pleasantly rustic, a bit austere in the finish, just what I would expect from a Sangiovese based wine.
