97 Points! Wow. The 2013 Ilatraia jumps right out at you. This is a tremendous effort - I tasted this wine three times blind and it always came out on top. Cabernet Sauvignon (40%) is blended with Petit Verdot (40%) and Cabernet Franc (20%). The complexity and the ever-changing nature of the bouquet is mind-bending. Ilatraia shows enormous depth and sophistication, and it leaves a profound impact. The wine sports deep color saturation with brilliant flashes of dark ruby. The texture is immensely soft, yielding and seamless in its integration. Dark fruit and blackberry is followed by light notes of tobacco, toasted nut and scorched earth. I am in awe of its complexity. - Monica Larner, Wine Advocate
 
 
94 Points! Aromas of licorice with blackberries and hints of graphite. Full and juicy with chewy tannins. Very polished. Needs at least three years to open. A wine with classy structure. - James Suckling, jamessuckling.com
 
93 Points! The 2013 Ilatraia is Brancaia's Bordeaux blend from estate vineyards in Bolgheri. Dark cherry, plum, mocha, espresso and grilled herbs give the Ilatraia its distinctive richness and resonance. There is plenty of Maremma warmth and radiance here. I would prefer to drink this racy, fruit-driven Tuscan red over the next handful of years. - Antonio Galloni, Vinous Media
