"The 2013 Tre is an informal blend of 80% Sangiovese, 10% Merlot and 10% Cabernet Sauvignon. This happy threesome offers bright fruit nuances with loads of cherry and dark fruit at the front. This is an easy-drinking red with a lean and crisp character that makes it an excellent pairing partner to pizza or cheesy pasta dishes.

Barbara Widmer's Brancaia offers a stunning set of new releases with wines from some of the best recent vintages including 2010 and 2013. If you are a Brancaia fan, as am I, you should not miss these wines." (WA)

"Crushed flowers, sweet red berries and gently spiced notes take shape in the 2013 Tre, a blend of Sangiovese, Merlot and Cabernet Sauvignon sourced from Brancaia's estates in Radda, Castellina and Grosseto. Sweet red cherry and floral notes add precision on the finish. Drink this soft, supple red over the next few years." (VM)

"Lots of vivid spice, meat and dark berry fruit. Full body, fine tannins and bright acidity. Better than the 2012. Drink now." (JS)

Winery Notes:
Brancaia TRE is a wine full of character giving you drinking pleasure already at the moment of release. TRE stands for the three grape varieties Sangiovese, Merlot and Cabernet Sauvignon and for our three Tuscan estates - the basis for this wine. This elegant and well structured wine ages in oak casks, is easily accessible and matches every cuisine. TRE is our third label, so we have three good reasons to name it Brancaia TRE.
