Brancaia Ilatraia Rosso Maremma Toscana 2014
93pts - Monica Larner, The Wine Advocate
After working on their new estate in the coastal Maremma for 10 years, Brancaia have learnt a lot about the terroir. The age of the vines and new varietals available allowed for additional opportunities and the resulting blend is Brancaia's Ilatraia – this wine is elegant, composed by grape varietals that ripen gently every year in the Maremma even without irrigation - 40% Cabernet Sauvignon, 40% Petit Verdot, 20% Cabernet Franc. This is an intense, elegant and terroir focused wine. Drink now or savour for many years. One to match with bold flavoured meat dishes.
