2007 San Giusto a Rentennano "La Ricolma" Toscana

SKU #1143576 96 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Outer quote mark The 2007 La Ricolma (Merlot) flows across the palate with sensual grace as layers of perfumed red fruit meld seamlessly into silky, refined tannins. Medium in body, the wine possesses remarkable class and elegance. A final burst of sweet red berries, flowers and spices informs the breathtaking, exceptionally fine finish. Though delicious today for its soft, approachable personality, the fruit remains incredibly primary, with very little development in the aromas and flavors. A few more years in bottle should take care of things. Anticipated maturity: 2017-2027. San Giusto is one of the pearls of Italy. This small, family-run property is a great source for hand-made, artisan wines that reflect the best of the Tuscan vigneron spirit. Simply put, I was blown away by most of these new releases.

Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar

Outer quote mark Deep inky ruby. The nose is textbook merlot, but the dark plum, cassis, coffee and milk chocolate aromas seem overripe. Rich, fleshy and satisfying in the mouth, with flavors of dark fruits, herbs and prune. Inner quote mark (8/2010)
