Castello di Ama Merlot 'L'Apparita' 2010

2010 Toscana IGT 750ml


The Apparita vineyard is formed by several small parcels situated at the upper end of the Vigneto Bellavista. The area amounts to 3.844 hectares. Merlot was planted in 1982-1985 (it was Malvasia and Canaiolo since 1975). The vines are trained in the open lyre system and the soils are particularly rich in clay. Both factors make this small cru a jewel of the oenology world.
"Ama's 2010 L'Apparita is super-intriguing from the very first taste. With each passing vintage, it seems like Apparita becomes less about Merlot and more about Ama. Dark red cherries, rose petals, sage, rosemary, tobacco and licorice are some of the many notes that are alive in the glass. Wonderfully nuanced and expressive, the 2010 caresses every corner of the palate with breathtaking intensity and finesse. The 2010 isn't a huge Apparita, rather it is a cool vintage, savory Merlot built for the cellar." -Antonio Galloni
