Brilliant ratings for Brancaia Ilatraia 2015

Brilliant ratings for Brancaia Ilatraia 2015
After the excellent score of 96/100 by James Suckling, last October, Ilatraia 2015 got a beautiful 95/100 score and extremely flattering tasting notes from Monica Larner on “The 2015 Ilatraia is a drop-dead gorgeous blend of 40% Cabernet Sauvignon, 40% Petit Verdot and 20% Cabernet Franc with all fruit coming from Brancaia's Maremma vineyards along the Tuscan coast. This warm vintage has shaped an exuberant and intense red wine that hits the palate with lavish richness. The complex bouquet is composed of dark fruit elements that are contrasted seamlessly against spice, sweet tobacco and campfire ash. Yet the mouthfeel is never too heavy or overextracted. There's a lot to enjoy here.”
Not less exciting the score (93/100) and the notes by Bruce Sanderson in the Dec. 19, 2018 Wine Spectator Insider issue: “A beast, featuring plum, black currant, leather and earth flavors locked in a tight grip of tannins. A bit closed now, yet remains balanced and long on the iron-tinged finish.”
