Brancaia Ilatraia 2018

The 'Ilatria' is a wine of great structure, freshness and elegance. It shows a perfect balance between maturity and refinement. Our premium wine from the Maremma area is extremely velvety with pleasant tannins, typical of wines from the Tuscan coast. The blend of 40% Petit Verdot, 40% Cabernet Sauvignon and 20% Cabernet Franc reflects all the beauty of its terroir. It matures in French barriques, of which 50% are new, for 18 months and for at least one year in the bottle.

Colour

Ruby red with purple reflections.

Bouquet

A fine and extremely intense nose with jumps of blackberry and cassis, violet and chervil. It also has a dense mineral structure, with touches of powder, balsamic breath and hints of noble vegetable sensations.

Flavour

Dynamic, enveloping and warm on the palate with elegant tannins. A wine with very long persistence on sweet cinnamon aromas.

Pairing

Foods with intense flavours, game, braised, roasted or boiled meats.
