    Winemaker's Notes:

    #86 Wine Spectator Top 100 of 2012

    Named for a hillside in our estate vineyard, Brancaia in Maremma, our 2010 Ilatraia is a wine with intense aromas and flavors of liquorice and blueberry. Full body, with ultra-fine tannins and a long finish.

    Critical Acclaim:

    This is pure and oh-so-silky, featuring flavors of black currant, violet and sweet spice, with a hint of tobacco. The supple texture is offset by refined tannins as this cruises to a long aftertaste of black currant and spice. Cabernet Sauvignon, Petit Verdot and Cabernet Franc. Best from 2014 through 2024

    A blend of Cabernet Sauvignon, Sangiovese and Petit Verdot, the 2010 Ilatraia is a wine of gorgeous intensity and clarity. This muscular wine shows power and heft with thick tones of blackberry and cassis. Soft layering characterizes the finish.

    Lots of dark licorice and blueberries on the nose. Full body, with ultra-fine tannins and a long, long finish. This is whole and balanced. Best in 2013, but who can wait? A blend of Cabernet Sauvignon, Petit Verdot and Cabernet Franc.

    It is fascinating to taste the 2010 Ilatraia next to the 2011. Here, the cooler growing season gives this Cabernet Sauvignon/Petit Verdot/Cabernet Franc an element of freshness and vibrancy that is quite appealing. Sweet floral and spice notes add an element of freshness that adds lift to layers of finely woven dark red fruit. The 2010 has a little less body than the 2011, which makes me think it will mature sooner, but both vintages are pretty.

    Vinous / Antonio Galloni

    A blend of Cabernet Sauvignon, Petit Verdot and Cabernet Franc, this brings forth earthy aromas of tilled soil, ripe black berries, plum and a touch of leather. The ripe palate offers fleshy black cherry and blackberry accented by cinnamon and white pepper notes, all alongside soft, round tannins.
