Concentrated flavors of currant, herb and blackberry pair well with meat and game, and roasted or braised poultry such as chicken or duck.
Ilatraia is the first wine from our new estate in the Maremma: Brancaia in Maremma. Only 62 miles from Brancaia (Chianti Classico) we find a completely different climate – winters are
milder and summers are much hotter and very dry. This allows us to produce a wine with distinct varietal character with the same high quality standards. Ilatraia is an intense, elegant and terroir-typical blend of Cabernet Sauvignon, Sangiovese and Petit Verdot. It ages for 18 months in barriques. The name Ilatraia has been the name of a hill on our estate for centuries – today it is a Petit Verdot vineyard.
60% Cabernet Sauvignon
10% Petit Verdot
