Wine Spectator Notes : Pure black currant and bilberry aromas and flavors course through this Super Tuscan, which is dense yet lively. Well-integrated oak peeks through on the finish, with an accent of vanilla. Brancaia ILATRAIA 2009 is a blend of Cabernet Sauvignon, Petit Verdot and Cabernet Franc. Best from 2012 through 2017.

Robert Parker Notes : The 2009 Ilatraia flows from the glass with layers of opulent jammy fruit. It shows excellent concentration and depth, but the French oak is quite prominent at this stage. I have my doubts as to whether bottle age will make a significant difference. Blackberry jam, sweet spices, vanillin, flowers and plums inform the supple, perfumed finish. Ilatraia is 40% Cabernet Sauvignon, 40% Petit Verdot and 20% Cabernet Franc that spent 18 months in French oak barrels, 50% new. Anticipated maturity: 2012-2021.

Tasting Notes : Winemaker's notes : Intense aromas and flavors of black currant and bilberry. Notes of peach, plum and a touch of pepper on the palate meld with hints of vanilla from oak aging. Pair this Italian red wine with meat and game, and roasted or braised poultry such as chicken or duck.
