Intense aromas of black fruit. A firm and silky wine with fine tannins and a luscious finish. Perfect with food with balanced, intense flavours, meat and game dishes fried or stewed, poultry such as pigeon or pheasant.

The 2020 Ilartraia is a potent red that is going to need at least a few years in bottle to soten. Swaths of tannin wrap around a core of black fruit, chocolate, new leather, licorice, incense and lavender. A wine of substance and power, Ilatraia is not as forthcoming as most wines from the Tuscan coast. I suspect the high percentage of Petit Verdot in the blend has a lot to do with that. This is a superb showing, especially for a vintage that yielded generally lighter wines on the coast.

The nose is intensely spicy and warm with chili pepper and highlighting an umami meatiness. Cherries, blackberries and chocolate on the palate nonetheless give way again to pepper notes, from fresh cracked black peppercorns to chilis, through a hot finish.

Saturated with black currant, blackberry, plum, chocolate and dark spices, this red is also dense with gravelly tannins. Features flashes of medicinal herbs as this plays out on the long finish. Petit Verdot, Cabernet Sauvignon and Cabernet Franc. Best from 2025 through 2037. 3,333 cases made, 810 cases imported.
