Value Alert: 2007 Brancaia Toscana Tre

Saturday, February 6, 2010

I usually try to pass along value alerts for affordable highly rated wines that I've tried.  Unfortunately, by the time these wines get to market and I have a chance to try them they're sold out, especially when they've received the accolades the $20 2007 Brancaia Toscana Tre has.

Wine Spectator rated this wine 93 points (subscription required) and named it #10 in their Top 100 Wines of 2009 list:

"There's wonderful intensity of fruit in this wine, with crushed raspberry and blackberry and hints of coffee and fresh flowers. Full-bodied, with velvety tannins and a long, soft-textured finish that shows loads of fruit. Sangiovese, Merlot and Cabernet Sauvignon. Best after 2010. 25,000 cases made. –JS"

I've seen this wine pop up on a couple of E-mail offers from Massachusetts retailers in limited quantities.  If you see an offer from your favorite retailer it sounds like one to take advantage of because this wine will likely not sit on the shelves long if at all.

Which retailers and E-mail lists do I like best?  I'm glad you asked!

Thanks to new friend JF for the tip on this one.  I appreciate it. 

Update (2/10/2010): This wine is available at Blanchards in West Roxbury, MA.  Use the coupon code" TOP10" to receive 20% off 6 or more bottles.  More info HERE.

Update (2/15/2010): I saw this wine at The Grape Vine in Boxborough, MA for $19.99 (less 20% if purchased as part of a mixed case).  They have the '06 on the shelf but ask them to check for some of the '07- I bet they have it in the basement. :)

Question of the Day: Have you seen this wine on retailer shelves yet?  If so, where and how much?
