Wine Spectator 92 points - The cherry and strawberry fruit is bright, with leather and sweet spice accents. This is firm, revealing finesse and a rich texture with air. Dense tannins show on the finish. Cabernet Sauvignon, Petit Verdot and Cabernet Franc. Best from 2015 through 2023.—B.S (Jun 18 2014)

"Beautiful aromas of raspberries and currants. Full body with very integrated tannins and mineral and fruit character. Very fine intend. A blend of 40% cabernet sauvignon, 40% petit verdot and 20 cabernet franc. Try in 2016 but so wonderful to taste now."

90 PTS – Vinous / Antonio Galloni
"Blackberry jam, grilled herbs, smoke, licorice and melted road tar all flesh out in the 2011 Iltatraia. The style is decidedly dark and muscular, with a little additional volume and texture from the precocious vintage. A rich, seamless wine, the 2011 Ilatraia will appeal most to readers who like big, rich wines with a lot of fruit and pure voluptuousness."

Blend: 40% Cabernet Sauvignon, 40% Petit Verdot, 20% Cabernet Franc

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.
