The Ilatraia is our top wine from the Maremma – it is full-bodied and impresses with its freshness, precision and elegance. This wine shows a perfect balance between maturity and finesse. It is extremely silky and polished with supple tannins that are typical of the Tuscan coast. The blend of 40% Petit Verdot, 40% Cabernet Sauvignon and 20% Cabernet Franc shows the full beauty of this terroir. This is not least because the three grape varieties can ripen perfectly without irrigation. Ilatraia is aged in half new French barriques for 18 months and then matures in the bottle for at least one year. Ideal with: dishes with balanced, intense flavors, with meat and game dishes (fried or braised), with poultry such as pigeon or pheasant. Our favorite: fresh tagliatelle with wild boar ragout.

Region: Tuscany

Tuscany is probably Italy's most important and widely respected wine region, with a history which stretches back almost three thousand years, and a set of fine grape varietals which produce some of the most delicious quality white and red wines in the world. Sangiovese and Vernaccia varietal grapes are grown all over this expansive region, and the way they are handled, aged and processed varies from town to town. The beautiful hot climate of Tuscany helps these grapes reach full ripeness, despite the fact the soil of the region is generally problematic for the vintners who work there. Despite this, there is a dedication to quality and flavor in Tuscany which is more or less unmatched anywhere else in Italy, and a great mix of strong tradition and willingness to experiment and think outside the box which has been a wonderful recipe for success in the region.

Country: Italy

Italy is recognised as being one of the finest wine producing countries in the world, and it isn't difficult to see why. With a vast amount of land across the country used primarily for vineyard cultivation and wine production, each region of Italy manages to produce a wide range of excellent quality wines, each representative of the region it is produced in. Any lover of Italian wines will be able to tell you of the variety the country produces, from the deliciously astringent and alpine-fresh wines of the northern borders, to the deliciously jammy and fruit-forward wines of the south and the Italian islands. Regions such as Barolo are frequently compared with Bordeaux and Burgundy in France, as their oak aged red wines have all the complexity and earthy, spicy excellence of some of the finest wines in the world, and the sparkling wines of Asti and elsewhere in Italy can easily challenge and often exceed the high standards put forward by Champagne. Thanks to excellent terrain and climatic conditions, Italy has long since proven itself a major player in the world of wines, and long may this dedication to quality and excellence continue.
