Description

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.
 
"The highlight in this range, the 2013 L'Apparita is a real stunner. Deep, explosive and beautifully layered in the glass, the 2013 possesses stunning nuance. This is an especially restrained Apparita built more on finesse than power. The translucence and total sense of elegance here are both truly remarkable. In short, this is a memorable edition for one of Tuscany's very finest wines. Layers of rich, dark fruit, spice, leather and smoke infuse the creamy, voluptuous finish. The oak needs to settle down." -Antonio Galloni
