Buy Brancaia Ilatraia IGT
Wine Spectator 90 points - The 2009 Ilatraia flows from the glass with layers of opulent jammy fruit. It shows excellent concentration and depth, but the French oak is quite prominent at this stage. I have my doubts as to whether bottle age will make a significant difference. Blackberry jam, sweet spices, vanillin, flowers and plums inform the supple, perfumed finish. Ilatraia is 40% Cabernet Sauvignon, 40% Petit Verdot and 20% Cabernet Franc that spent 18 months in French oak barrels, 50% new. Anticipated maturity: 2012-2021.

Producer
It was in 1981, when the Swiss couple Brigitte and Bruno Widmer fell in love with the at the time abandoned Brancaia estate (Castellina in Chianti) and purchased it. Only two years later, Brancaia made the first rank in an important Chianti Classico tasting and then rapidly gained international recognition. This lead to a continuous extension of the activities resulting in purchasing the Poppi estate (Radda in Chianti) in 1989, followed in 1998 by the founding of Brancaia in Maremma, only 10km from the Mediterranean coastline. Since 1998 Barbara Widmer, oenologist and daughter of the founders, has been responsible for the winemaking as well as for the vineyards on all three estates - she thereby relies on the consultancy of the famous oenologist Carlo Ferrini. Since 2002 Martin Kronenberg has directed the estates together with Barbara while being responsible for the management and the worldwide distribution. Today BRANCAIA is one of Tuscany’s leading wineries, receiving important national and international awards every year. The wines are successfully sold worldwide.
