Description

I am immediately struck by the power and concentration of the Castello di Ama 2017 L'Apparita. This is an exuberant and gregarious expression of Merlot that has absorbed every last sunbeam of the hot summer season. On the nose, the wine shows beautiful fullness and generosity that spills richly across the senses. Blackberry syrup and cherry liqueur are followed by smoke, tar, toast and sweet chewing tobacco. You taste that extra density in a similar manner, and the rich concentration of the fruit has consequently shaped a more apparent tannin and a little snap of astringency on the close. My sample bottle does not show a reading of the wine's alcoholic content, but you feel some heat as well. This edition of L'Apparita is extra dark, succulent and firm. When the wine has been given another five to ten years of cellar age, then I'd suggest guinea fowl or one of those delicious roasted pigeon dishes you find in Tuscany. -WA

The Winery

Castello di Ama is an estate founded in the 1960s in the Chianti Classico region of Tuscany, particularly known for its range of single-vineyard Gran Selezione red wines, and the spicy, floral, dark fruit-laden IGT Toscana, l'Apparita, made from Merlot. It is one of the most highly regarded producers in the region, and has gained numerous awards.
