Wine Spectator:

"A vibrant, finely knit red, with a minerally underpinning and rippling notes of crushed raspberry and black cherry fruit. This is medium-bodied, with sleek tannins and a lasting finish that echoes the aromatic herb and spice accents. Drink now through 2023. 11,667 cases made."

Product Description:

Montepulciano Riserva Ilico is 100% Montepulciano from a single-vineyard, a small but stately step-up from the Riparosso, more structured from extended time in oak, still a great value for a Riserva bottling from a top producer such as Illuminati.

Ilico offers great textural richness and intensity; juicy dark cherries, flowers and spices seem to jump from the glass. A joyous, fruit-driven red, Ilico is an excellent choice for drinking with roasted red meats, braised meats, game, poultry, medium-aged cheeses, and it is ideal with lamb.
