The 2007 Ilatraia is awesome. Black cherries, violets, minerals, mocha, spices and French oak are some of the nuances that flow from this round, enveloping wine. The 2007 Ilatraia is quite intense, dark and brooding. While the richness of the fruit makes the wine delicious today, it will be even better in a few years. Ilatraia is Cabernet Sauvignon, Sangiovese and Petit Verdot from vineyards in Maremma that spent 18 months in French oak. The warmth and sheer volume of Maremma comes through in spades in this vintage, which is among the finest I have tasted of this relatively young bottling. Anticipated maturity: 2017-2027.

Currant, blackberry, mint and licorice aromas lead to a full-bodied palate, with a solid core of beautiful, ripe, opulent fruit and polished tannins. Lasts for minutes on the palate. Cabernet Sauvignon, Sangiovese and Petit Verdot. Best after 2012. 3,500 cases made.
