Castello di Ama Merlot 'L'Apparita' 2015

2015 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 2015 L'Apparita is shaping up to be phenomenal. That is the good news. But readers are going to have to give the 2015 at least another 8-10 years before the wine starts to drink well, as today, the flavors are remarkably primary. That is hardly a surprise given how this Tuscan thoroughbred ages. A rush of blackberry jam, spice, menthol, and graphite build into a crescendo of aromas, flavors and textures. Over the years, I have had the chance to take virtually every vintage of L'Apparita. There is little doubt the 2015 will soon take its place as one of the epic editions." -Antonio Galloni
