  • 93 Points - The Wine Advocate

    ”The 2014 L’Apparita is the latest edition of one of Italy’s most iconic Merlots. Fruit was left to ripen on the vines longer in 2014 as the summer temperatures really only got hot towards the very end of the season. The wine shows a soft and luscious bouquet with thick layers of red cherry, cassis, blueberry, spice, soft tobacco and a touch of bitter chocolate. Yet, despite the aromatic generosity, this edition offers lighter and more delicate lines on the inside. The tannins are firm and steady, but the structure is mild. The mouthfeel shows medium heft backed by long persistence. Balsam herb and cola add to the soft intensity.” Monica Lancer

    ”One of Italy's most celebrated Merlots, the 2013 L'Apparita is a soft and luscious expression with dark fruit, baking spice, hickory smoke and aged mahogany. The wine does show some nagging unripe flavors of green herb or peppercorn at the back that prevent me from being as enthusiast as I was with the 2010 and the 2011 vintages. That impression is backed by a spot of sourness that you taste on the finish. I'm sure it will improve with age, but I doubt that bitter note will ever fully disappear.” Monica Lancer
