"L'Apparita was Tuscany's first pure Merlot and has been a cult wine since its very first vintage, in 1985. The vines are trained as open lyre and the soil is clay rich, making this tiny cru a real gem in the world of winemaking. Red berries, blackberries; spice, black peppercorns and juniper. A balsamic note completes the aromatic profile of this wine. Extremely stylish, velvety and mouthfilling, yet powerful, with silky, delicate tannins. Decidedly fresh-tasting, endlessly lingering." —winemaker
"A gorgeous red with blackberry, cherry and blueberry character throughout. Medium body, ultra-fine tannins and a fresh finish. Vigorous and vibrant. Gorgeous pure merlot as always. Built for aging but pretty to drink now." —JamesSuckling.com

"Dense, with a tightly woven matrix supporting black cherry, plum, black pepper, tobacco and mineral flavors. All the components are there, but this needs time to absorb the firm, muscular tannins. Fine length. Merlot. Best from 2018 through 2030. 80 cases imported." —Bruce Sanderson, Wine Spectator
