Vigna L´apparita Castello di Ama 2006

Winemaker's Notes:

"'The 2006 L’Apparita (Merlot) reveals gorgeous clarity and precision. It is another large-scaled, dramatic wine, rich in baritone notes of dark fruit, menthol, herbs, licorice and new leather. The tannins build mightily on the vibrant finish, yet this remains an impeccable, polished wine of remarkable beauty. I only hope to have a chance to taste the wine again in the future?.amazingly today it tastes just like it did from tank in November 2006! Anticipated maturity: 2016-2022...95"WA 09/2009 "Wonderful crushed berry and jam aromas, with hints of black olives and herbs.
