About

94

"WS Top 100 Wines of 2015, #52!

Dense and tightly wound, with a beam of black cherry and blueberry fruit. Cedar, smoke, tar and tobacco notes add nuance, giving this a complex impression overall. Balanced and long, with a compact finish that should expand as this integrates more fully. Cabernet Sauvignon, Petit Verdot and Cabernet Franc."

93 Monica Larner - Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

"The 2012 Ilatraia is a blend of 40% Cabernet Sauvignon, 40% Petit Verdot and 20% Cabernet Franc that sees an 18-month oak regime with new and used barrique. This is a massive wine that smiles bright with Tuscan sunshine. Its appearance is dark and dense and the bouquet peels back with thick layers of black fruit and integrated spice. The tannins are supple, soft and seamless."
