ILATRAIA is a modern and terroir-typical blend of 40% Cabernet Sauvignon, 40% Petit Verdot and 20% Cabernet Franc. A full-bodied wine with freshness, definition and elegance. Intense aromas of black fruit. A firm and silky wine with fine tannins and a luscious finish.
Perfect with food with balanced, intense flavors, meat and game dishes fried or stewed, poultry such as pigeon or pheasant.
"I f you love this combination of full-throttle grapes, I suggest you try this rendition. It tends to be more delicate and nuanced at the edges compared to a similar blend from a New World wine region, like say, California. The wine is contoured and full but never heavy. Indeed, the aromas of blackberry, spice and tar remain surprisingly fresh and bright. This is a big wine to be sure, but there is a lot of tonic energy packed tight within." 09/19" 96 points Wine Advocate
