Winemaker Notes: Brancaia Ilatraia Red Blend is a "Super Tuscan" blend named for a hillside at their Brancaia in Maremma estate vineyard. Ilatraia is a fruit-forward and distinctively rich blend that has intense aromas and flavors of black cherry, plum, blueberry and spice. Those flavors are backed by ultra-fine tannins on the full-bodied palate, while subtle notes of coffee and licorice are found on the lingering finish. From Italy, IGT Rosso Toscana Maremma.

CRITICAL ACCLAIM


James Suckling - "Blackberries and currants with some violet and walnut undertones. Medium-to full-bodied with firm, polished tannins that show balance and focus. Stone and mahogany. Just a hint of chocolate. Racy and fine. 40% petit verdot, 40% cabernet sauvignon and 20% cabernet franc. Drink now or hold."


Vinous - "The 2018 Ilatraia is a heady, potent wine that captures all of the natural density of Maremma. A blast of black plum fruit, chocolate, dried herbs, licorice and copious French oak lends notable exuberance. Ilatraia doesn't quite have the open-knit charm of most Bolgheri reds, likely because of the booming structure of Petit Verdot and its formidable tannic clout. Even so, there is plenty to like, especially for readers who enjoy big Tuscan wines."
