WSI94+ Big, dense, voluptuous, hedonistic. Dark brooding fruit, surprisingly velvet-smooth texture and impressive tannin structure. The wine is not overdone, finishes dry and fresh, grip from tannin promises serious longevity and enjoyment. Stunning!
TWI93 A blend of 77% Malbec and 23% Cabernet Sauvignon, the 2021 Ilaria Malbec has a deep garnet-purple color. It needs a fair bit of swirling to unlock powerful notes of plum preserves, chocolate-covered cherries, and lilacs, leading to suggestions of clove oil and fallen leaves. The full-bodied palate is jam-packed with bright, energetic black fruits and captivating floral sparks, framed by velvety tannins and lovely tension, finishing with great persistence.
