2004 San Giusto a Rentennano "La Ricolma" Toscana

SKU #1249804 95 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Outer quote mark The 2004 Ricolma (100% Merlot) possesses stunning aromatics and layers of blackberry liqueur, minerals, chocolate and sweet toasted oak. Vibrant and shimmering on the palate, it shows plenty of Tuscan structure to support the fruit, with phenomenal length and ripe, sweet tannins to round out the finish. It is another stunning wine from San Giusto a Rentennano. (AG) Inner quote mark (6/2007)

94 points James Suckling

Outer quote mark Wow. Aromas of foie gras and plum sauce. Some flowers, too. Full body, chewy and velvety with a wealth of blackberry and blueberry character. Chewy and tannic yet inviting and rich. An opulent wine at this age. Drink or hold. Inner quote mark (10/2017)

94 points Wine Enthusiast

Outer quote mark La Ricolma opens with a blast of black olive then builds in intensity to include aromas of juicy fruit, blackberry, molasses, chalky mineral and chocolate fudge. This 100% Merlot is generous and opulent to the very end. *Cellar Selection* Inner quote mark (4/2008)

90 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar

Outer quote mark Inky ruby. Ripe, concentrated and vibrant aromas of black cherry, raspberry, milk chocolate and flowers. Red fruit and spice flavors are complicated by a delicate smoky nuance on the back end, with plenty of acidity and sweet tannins keeping the wine lithe and long on the palate. The numbers tell part of the story of this refined merlot: 6.3 grams per liter of total acidity, a very high 31.6 grams of dry extract, and a late harvest on September 27 and 28. (ST) Inner quote mark (7/2007)

90 points Wine Spectator

Outer quote mark Aromas of blackberry, barley and rose follow through to a full body, with chewy tannins and a long finish. Loads of new wood. Needs time. (Web-2007) (JS) Inner quote mark
