L’Apparita was Tuscany’s first pure Merlot and has been a cult wine since its very first vintage, in 1985. The small parcels that make up the 3.84 hectares of the L’Apparita vineyard are set atop the Vigneto Bellavista hill, at an altitude di 490 metres asl. In 1975 they were planted with Canaiolo and Malvasia Bianca, then grafted over with Merlot clone 342 between 1982 and 1985.
Deep, impenetrable crimson with violet nuances.
Red berries, blackberries; spice, black peppercorns and juniper. A balsamic note completes the aromatic profile of this wine.
Extremely stylish, velvety and mouthfilling, yet powerful, with silky, delicate tannins. Decidedly fresh-tasting, endlessly lingering.

Castello di Ama

From this winery:
“A place of cultic importance in the wine world. We Italians often complain that we do not have our own Chateaux Margaux, our Romanée Conti, our Opus One. But we are wrong, for we do have here in Italy some wine “houses” that are something better, so...
