Wine Advocate 93 points - A blend of Cabernet Sauvignon (40%), Petit Verdot (40%) and Cabernet Franc (20%), the 2010 Ilatraia is a wine of gorgeous intensity and clarity. This muscular wine shows power and heft with thick tones of blackberry and cassis. Soft layering characterizes the finish. Anticipated maturity: 2014-2015.  (Aug 2013)

Wine Spectator 94 points - This is pure and oh-so-silky, featuring flavors of black currant, violet and sweet spice, with a hint of tobacco. The supple texture is offset by refined tannins as this cruises to a long aftertaste of black currant and spice. Cabernet Sauvignon, Petit Verdot and Cabernet Franc. Best from 2014 through 2024. –BS Rated #86 in Wine Spectator’s 2012 Top 100

Brancaia ILATRAIA is a modern and terroir-typical blend of 40% Cabernet Sauvignon, 40% Petit Verdot and 20% Cabernet Franc. The wine ages 18 months in French barriques - half of them are new - and then matures for a few months in the bottle, prior to release.
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.
