Brancaia Ilatraia 2009

Brancaia Ilatraia 750ML 2009      
Sku: 19716

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.

The 2009 Ilatraia flows from the glass with layers of opulent jammy fruit. It shows excellent concentration and depth, but the French oak is quite prominent at this stage. I have my doubts as to whether bottle age will make a significant difference. Blackberry jam, sweet spices, vanillin, flowers and plums inform the supple, perfumed finish. Ilatraia is 40% Cabernet Sauvignon, 40% Petit Verdot and 20% Cabernet Franc that spent 18 months in French oak barrels, 50% new. Anticipated maturity: 2012-2021.
