Description

Details

JS 94 WS 92 WA 92 AG 90 Pts - According to James Suckling - Beautiful aromas of raspberries and currants. Full body with very integrated tannins and mineral and fruit character. Very fine intend. A blend of 40% cabernet sauvignon, 40% petit verdot and 20 cabernet franc. Try in 2016 but so wonderful to taste now.

According to Wine Spectator - The cherry and strawberry fruit is bright, with leather and sweet spice accents. This is firm, revealing finesse and a rich texture with air. Dense tannins show on the finish. Cabernet Sauvignon, Petit Verdot and Cabernet Franc. Best from 2015 through 2023.

According to Wine Advocate - The 2011 Ilatraia represents a blend of Cabernet Sauvignon, Petit Verdot and Cabernet Franc. The wine opens to a beautifully saturated garnet color with dark intensity and a bold appearance. The nose matches the intensity of the wine's outer appearance with thick fruit layers and bursting blackberry. That pretty fruit core is embellished with delicate notes of spice, leather, tobacco and grilled herb. The wine shows fine tannins at the back with stern power and determination to match. This wine should hold well for a decade or more.

According to Antonio Galloni - Blackberry jam, grilled herbs, smoke, licorice and melted road tar all flesh out in the 2011 Iltatraia. The style is decidedly dark and muscular, with a little additional volume and texture from the precocious vintage. A rich, seamless wine, the 2011 Ilatraia will appeal most to readers who like big, rich wines with a lot of fruit and pure voluptuousness. 40% Cabernet Sauvignon, 40% Petit Verdot, 20% Cabernet Franc. 14.5% ABV.
