Poggio Ai Merli Castellare di Castellina 2013

Winemaker's Notes:

96 Points, Monica Larner, Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2013 Poggio Ai Merli is a beautiful wine from all sides. This pure expression of Merlot is generous and round with luscious layers that come forward one soft wave at a time. Perfectly ripened cherry, blackberry, spice, toasted almond and grilled Mediterranean herb form a seamless composition. This is one of the best editions of Poggio Ai Merli that I have tasted. The intensity is stunning and the velvety nature of the mouthfeel is impeccable. It is textured, structured and beautiful. This is a bottle for the cellar." Issue# 221, 10/15 94 Points, James Suckling: "A full-bodied red with dark chocolate, dried fruit and hints of vanilla. Soft and velvety. Lots of bright and beautiful fruit. Impressively structured. A glorious pure merlot." 08/15 92 Points, Antonio Galloni, Vinous Media: "A dark, sensual wine, the 2013 Poggio ai Merli (Merlot) offers lovely depth and fine overall balance, with beams of acidity and minerality that play off the intensity of the dark fruit. Dark red cherry, plum, smoke and mocha add nuance on the voluptuous, racy finish. The Poggio ai Merli is the one wine in the range that feels a bit ripe and heavy within the context of Castellare." 09/15
