"Bright red. Aromas of red cherry, tar and violet on the enticing nose. Dense but fresh, delivering crunchy red cherry fruit flavors that linger long on the bright floral finish." July 2016.
90 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."
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.
