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 Robertparker.com: “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.”

Onze Cava's in The Wine Advocate van ROBERT PARKER

Onze kwaliteits cava's zijn onlangs geproefd door Jay Miller van The Wine Advocate Robert Parker.

NV  Maria Casanovas Brut de Brut
A Proprietary Blend Dry  White Sparkling wine from , Cava, Penedes, Spain,
WA 194 (May 2011)
Rating: 87 
Drink 2011 - 2012
Cost: $20
Maria Casanova’s Non-Vintage Brut de Brut was made with the three traditional grapes of Cava and aged on its lees for 14 months. Minerals, almonds, and apple inform the nose of this crisp, just off-dry, vibrant Cava. It is a nicely proportioned, refreshingly styled wine for drinking over the next 12-18 months.

2007  Maria Casanovas Brut Nature Gran Reserva
A Proprietary Blend Dry  White Sparkling wine from Catalonia, Spain,
WA 194 (May 2011)
Rating: 90 
Drink 2011 - 2016
Cost: $37
The 2007 Brut Nature Gran Reserva is a blend of 40% Pinot Noir, 40% Chardonnay, and the balance the traditional Cava varieties that spent a total of 36 months on its lees. It offers up green apple aromas that jump from the glass along with an attractive minerality. On the palate it is creamier than the preceding wines displaying some finesse and complexity. This lengthy effort might well evolve for 1-2 years and should drink well for another 5.

2008  Maria Casanovas Brut Nature Pinot Noir
A Pinot Noir Dry  White Sparkling wine from Catalonia, Spain,

Rating: 92 
Drink - 
Cost: $37
The 2008 Brut Nature Pinot Noir is dark pink in color with a lovely bouquet of strawberry preserves and raspberry. Displaying impeccable balance, this mouth-filling Cava is a complete effort that demands pairing with Joselito jamon Iberico.

NV  Maria Casanovas Glac Brut Nature Reserva
A Proprietary Blend Dry  White Sparkling wine from , Cava, Penedes, Spain,
Review by 
WA 194 (May 2011)
Rating: 90 
Drink 2011 - 2013
Cost: $33
The Non-Vintage Glac Brut Nature Reserva was produced with 40% Pinot Noir with the balance the traditional Cava varieties with the fruit entirely from the 2009 vintage. Yeasty mineral, brioche, and white peach aromas lead to a Cava with greater depth and flavor than the Brut de Brut. It expresses a sense of elegance on the palate and in its medium-long finish. Drink it over the next 1-2 years.
