Castello di Ama L'Apparita Toscana IGT 2001
Bottle Size: 75cl
Region: Italy: Tuscany
Grape Variety: Merlot
Critic Score: The 2001 L'Apparita is the first wine in this tasting that shows tertiary complexity. Truffles, black pepper, spices, tobacco and incense literally jump from the glass, before the massive fruit hits the palate. Still a baby, readers lucky enough to own the 2001 can look forward to another 15-20 years of very fine drinking. Today, structure and power dominate. This is another impressive showing. Tasted June 2013. 96 Points, Antonio Galloni, Vinous.
