“97 pt Tignanello Toppler!”

"Wow." The Wine Advocate

By David Gettenberg

Tignanello is good, very good...

However, the 2013 Brancaia Ilatraia is GREAT! It is one of the best kept secrets in Tuscany.

If you are a Super Tuscan fan, or a fan of Cabernet Sauvignon, this Tignanello Toppler is for you.

"Wow. The 2013 Ilatraia jumps right out at you. This is a tremendous effort...the bouquet is mind-bending. Ilatraia shows enormous depth and sophistication, and it leaves a profound impact...Dark fruit and blackberry is followed by light notes of tobacco, toasted nut and scorched earth. I am in awe of its complexity." The Wine Advocate

Taking its cue from Bordeaux - like many Super Tuscans - the 2013 Brancaia Ilatraia is a blend of Cabernet Sauvignon (40%), Petit Verdot (40%) and Cabernet Franc (20%). The high-elevation, estate grown fruit in Maremma benefits from the coastal influence. Warm days and cooling nights means the lush fruit is offset by beautiful acidity.

We don't expect this one to last very long as there isn't much to be had.

Buy some for now, buy some for later...you'll be elated that you did!
