Tasting Notes

The estate’s 2006 Ilatraia is an unqualified success in this vintage. Super-ripe dark cherries are intermingled with spices, minerals and French oak in this generous, expansive wine from Tuscany’s Maremma. There is tons of length here to go along with the wine’s sumptuous, generous personality. This is probably not a long-term ager, but it should drink beautifully over the mid-term. Ilatraia is 60% Cabernet Sauvignon, 30% Sangiovese and 10% Petit Verdot.

Score: 93

Shows aromas of currant and fresh herbs, such as basil and sage. Full-bodied, with silky tannins and a balanced, pretty, juicy finish. Delicious already. This is always outstanding. Cabernet Sauvignon, Sangiovese and Petit Verdot. Best after 2009.
