• "Maurus" Merlot Friuli Isonzo DOC 2016

      “Maurus” Merlot Friuli Isonzo DOC 2016

      Beautiful interpretation of the grape variety: Herbaceous and minty notes on the nose, plus lavender and sage. Then very tasty and complex on the palate of dark fruits, dried cherries, complemented by tones of undergrowth and tobacco. A touch of fine tannins, minerals and traces of rosemary and liquorice lead this medium-bodied red seductively into a sophisticated final. SUPERIORE.DE

    • "Blumeri" Rosso Venezia-Giulia IGT 2017

      “Blumeri” Rosso Venezia-Giulia IGT 2017

      Dark ruby, fine spicy underlaid ripe fruit scent, delicate blackberry, cassis and dried herbs. Elegant and of very good complexity, silky tannins and sweet fruit, well structured and cherry finish. Already today an accessible and very elegant food companion. SUPERIORE.DE

      "Deep ruby. Chocolate and coffee dominate the dark plum and dark berry flavors. Youthful, chewy but refined in the mouth, with a strong spicy and sexy oak component that does not overpower the underlying blue fruit and herbal flavors." Vinous

      "A release of about 3,300 bottles, the Schiopetto 2017 Podere dei Blumeri is an equal-parts blend of Merlot and Refosco that shows terrific balance and a bright, fruit-forward presentation. The wine displays candied fruit aromas with cherry, blackcurrant, plum, spice and bitter chocolate. In terms of appearance, it displays a bright ruby color with bluish hues. There is plenty of fresh, sweet berry fruit on the close that gives this wine great appeal straight out of the gate." Robert Parker

      "This is a fantastic red. Best ever from here. Iodine, oyster-shell, black-olive and blackberry character. Full-bodied, layered and chewy, yet polished and intense." James Suckling

      "Vivid full ruby. Bright and fresh on the nose and in the mouth, with savory and juicy nuances of dark plum, coffee, mint and cocoa. Finishes crisp and vibrantly fruity, with no green notes. A very FVG version of Merlot far removed from Pomerol but fine and juicy, with enticing purity and precision of Merlot fruit." Ian d’Agata (vinous.com)

      Deep Merlot Riserva with a complex bouquet reminiscent of dried fruits, wild raspberries, blackberries and tobacco. On the palate very dense fruit, strong body and polished tannin. Good ageing potential. SUPERIORE.DE

      "Spicy bramble and dried fruits with smoked oaky notes. Delicious cherry freshness with juicy elegant tannins and great spiced character." Decanter

      "Plums and walnuts with herb and bark undertones. Redcurrants, too. It’s full-bodied with round, chewy tannins and a flavorful finish. A big, beautiful merlot here from Alto Adige. Drink in 2022." James Suckling

      "In this series of reds from this hot and dry vintage, the early-ripening Cantina Andriano (Kellerei Andrian) 2017 Alto Adige Merlot Riserva Gant is the wine that most reflects the characteristics of the growing season. The wine shows rich softness and plushness with generous tones of cherry confit, blackberry preserves and Spanish cedar. Thanks to the cool microclimates of the Dolomites, the wine is never overtly jammy or overdone. In fact, it portrays the vintage with overall elegance and balance." Robert Parker

    • "Mauritius" Lagrein/Merlot Alto Adige DOC 2018

      “Mauritius” Lagrein/Merlot Alto Adige DOC 2018

      Dark garnet red with ruby reflections. Complex bouquet of wild berries, underlaid with a spicy and cocoa note. On the palate again dark fruit, some smoke and tar, the fine-meshed tannin gives a wonderful structure, underlaid with a delicate wood spice in the finish. SUPERIORE.DE

      "Dark garnet red with a rich core and brilliant ruby accents. Dark berry fruit nuances on the nose, of wild berries, elderberries and figs, plus flint and mocha in the background. Stretches wirily across the tongue with young tannin, dense structure on the front palate, with a compact, persistent finish." Falstaff

      "Here are two red grapes that make happy bedfellows. The Cantina Produttori Bolzano 2018 Alto Adige Lagrein Merlot Mauritius is a blend of two like-minded varieties that both prize fruity succulence and soft tannins. This vintage offers thick concentration and ample aromas of dark cherry, blackberry and summer plum. Subtle layers of smoke and spice fill in the rear. The tannins are very sweet. This hearty red wine could pair with a classic meatloaf with a buttered baked potato on the side." Robert Parker

      "Full and open blueberry nose that's ripe, but also has plenty of mint. Very juicy and ample on the palate with a hint of tar. Fresh acidity keeps the alcohol in check and the finish clean." James Suckling

      "The 2018 Alto Adige Merlot Riserva Gant is a beautiful wine that will appeal to Merlot enthusiasts who appreciate supple richness paired with etched, cool-climate elegance. This wine offers aromas of wild cherry and blackberry with delicate hints of leather and tobacco. Those savory tones play a supporting role, leaving the dark fruit as the certain protagonist. The mouthfeel is soft and plush, and therein lies the paradox of the 2018 vintage: The wines feel riper and more mature, owing to a growing season that started cool and ended with much warmer temperatures."

    • "Sansonina" Merlot Garda DOC 2018

      “Sansonina” Merlot Garda DOC 2018

      Sansonina is a strictly limited and very ambitious project of the Zenato family, using only the best grapes from their own vineyards. Only a small amount of it reaches the specialist trade each year in numbered bottles.

      A textbook-like bouquet of a slightly mature Merlot with dark fruit depth and beautiful notes of graphite and flint. Warm and soft on the palate, yet punchy, very precise and dry, at the same time showing lots of dark cherries and a fine sweet spiciness. You can literally feel the Lake Garda climate in its fresh and extremely harmonious character and you can be very curious about further years of bottle ageing! SUPERIORE.DE

      "Exquisite aromas and flavors of black cherries, violets, chili chocolate and rosemary-like herbs. Full and very silky with well-integrated, chocolate-coated tannins, carrying a hint of balsamic, too. Long, delicious finish. So well balanced and refined. Complex." James Suckling

      “Geremia” Rosso Toscano IGT 2016 (BIO)

      Intense scent of currants and black cherries, leather, spices and liquorice. Lush and flowing on the palate, all elements merge into a big, striking wine. Great potential! SUPERIORE.DE

      "Dark, rich garnet. Elegant and finely fragrant nose of ripe blackberries, cassis as well as a pinch of wild berries, in the reverberation noble spicy notes. Compact and complex on the palate, showing presence and clarity with a long course, juicy finish." Falstaff

      "Blackberry, blueberry, dark cherry, spice, sliced mushroom and dark chocolate on the nose. It's full-bodied with firm tannins. Firm and focused with a succulent, flavorful palate. Long finish." James Suckling

      "There is a beam of pure, saturated black cherry underneath leather, woodsy, iron, sanguine and rust notes. Bright and firmly structured, with dense tannins. The finish is long and complex." Wine Spectator

      "The 2016 Geremia is even better than it was last year. Fresh, vibrant and full of energy, the 2016 is so wonderfully alive in the glass. The flavors are remarkably intense, and yet there is a feeling of lightness that keeps the wine brilliant. Crushed rocks, menthol, licorice, sage and gravel wrap around a core of blue/purplish fruit. There is something about the 2016 that is magical, many things, actually. Geremia is one of the most distinctive and unique wines in Chianti Classico. The 2016 is absolutely stellar." Vinous

      “Cont' Ugo” Rosso Bolgheri DOC 2017

      Dark ruby violet, smells of blackcurrants and unfolds with excellent length, firm tannin, fine extract sweetness and an emphatically spicy note in the final. We are curious to see what elegant flight of fancy this great Tuscan Merlot will take off in the coming years. SUPERIORE.DE

      "The 2017 Cont'Ugo is laced with red cherry jam, mocha, flowers, mint and sweet spices. Rich and voluptuous in the glass, with tremendous vivacity, the 2017 is another winner from Antinori's Guado al Tasso estate. The 2017 is plush, sumptuous, fruity and ripe, with silky tannins that give it striking immediacy and tons of appeal." Vinous

      "The 2017 Geremia is a revelation. It might be even better than the 2015 or 2016, which is saying a lot. Soaring aromatics make a strong first impression. In 2017, the fruit profile leans more into the red fruit end of the spectrum. The warm, dry year yielded a Geremia that is unusually open. I doubt too many of the estate's fans will have a problem with that given how long these wines usually take to open. Today, the 2017 Geremia is a total pleasure bomb. Don't miss it." Vinous

    • "Casalferro" Rosso Toscana IGT 2016

      “Casalferro” Rosso Toscana IGT 2016

      Pure variety Merlot, which offers a very spicy nose, multi-layered red fruit aromas, a powerful and dense body. Big, firm, smooth and with potential for quite a few years. SUPERIORE.DE

      "Bright ruby with a slight violet shimmer. Shows notes of tobacco and liquorice on the nose, lots of blackberry. Lots of juicy fruit on the palate, fine-meshed tannin, plenty of crisp acidity." Falstaff

      "Full and juicy with lots of ripe fruit and spices. Firm and silky tannins. A little tight now but shows potential." James Suckling

      "The Barone Ricasoli 2016 Casalferro puts a purely Tuscan fingerprint on the Merlot grape. From a classic vintage that was especially favorable for an early-ripening variety such as this, the wine is beautifully tonic and tightly wound initially, although it cedes and expands quite elegantly onto the palate. The bouquet opens gracefully to dark cherry, blackberry, spice, leather and tar. These elements are balanced and weighed against each other with just the right intensity." Robert Parker

    • "Donna Liù" Merlot Toscana IGT 2019

      “Donna Liù" Merlot Toscana IGT 2019

      Since the 2018 vintage, a small quantity of Merlot has been vinified separately for the first time at Rampolla, named after the mother Donna Liù. The unfiltered wine was aged for 12 months in terracotta amphora and is almost fermented to 0 g/l residual sugar. Very elegant, fresh nose of sour cherry, laurel and cassis. On the palate, fresh and without the sometimes exuberant opulence of some other Tuscan Merlots, with a precise cherry fruit and salty-minty component. A finely chiselled Merlot and hard to beat in terms of freshness, clarity and personality. It bridges the gap between the Chianti Classico and the two flagships of the house, Sammarco and d'Alceo. Needs a few more years of bottle ageing. SUPERIORE.DE

      "Berries, cherries and violets with some black-olive and black-truffle notes. Very complex. Medium-to full-bodied with linear tannins that are polished and fine, running through the center palate. Tight at the end. Very pretty and racy. Unfiltered." James Suckling

      "The 2019 Merlot Liu' is another outrageously beautiful wine from Rampolla. Deep, inky and explosive, the 2019 possesses tremendous energy to match its purity of fruit. Blueberry, spice, leather, menthol and espresso build into the potent, tannic finish. Readers will find a serious Merlot packed with fruit and structure. Rampolla planted Merlot in 2000 and 2003 to soften Sammarco, but the vines turned out to be more productive than expected, giving birth to the Liu'. The 2019 was aged in cement and terracotta. I am not entirely sure how the Liu' will mature, but I also doubt that will be much a concern for the vast majority of readers." Vinous

      "The Castello dei Rampolla 2019 Liù is a relatively new wine (the first vintage made was the 2018) and a pure expression of Merlot. The wine is generously endowed with lots of fruit flavor and a distinctive punchiness that adds a bright and lifted quality to the bouquet. It sports a mid-weight approach with plenty of summer fresh cherry, plum and other purple fruits. It's hard not to feel immediately attracted to this wine, especially given its very vivid and bright personality. You'll have a lot of fun drinking Liù straight out of the gate or likewise waiting for it to complete its bottle evolution." Robert Parker

    • "In Violas" Merlot Cortona DOC 2016 <br>MAGNUM in OWC

      “In Violas” Merlot Cortona DOC 2016 · MAGNUM in OWC

      The DOC Cortona, which has existed since 1999, is famous for its single-varietal Syrahs and Merlots, whose vines thrive excellently on the Pliocene clayey soils. Since 2006, the Carletti family has also been involved in this appellation, which was quite unknown until today, and their Merlot Il Violas is now known beyond the borders of Italy and has many lovers.

      Dense, dark ruby with violet reflections. On the nose, an open-hearted bouquet of black berry fruits, sandalwood, rosemary and with fine spice. The texture coats the palate, warm, intense and rich of dark fruits, chocolate, plum and redcurrant. In Violas is a generous and deep red that just calls out for a Bistecca Fiorentina and gives much pleasure. SUPERIORE.DE

      "The 2016 In Violas is a bold, savory wine. Dried cherry, leather scorched earth, licorice and lavender add savory overtones to this firm, brooding Merlot." Vinous

      "Black olives and berries on the nose and palate. Full body. Round and juicy with a flavorful finish. Shows focus and beauty." James Suckling

      "The Poliziano 2016 Cortona Merlot in Violas pours from the bottle with a dark and thickly concentrated appearance. The wine opens to rich fruit, plum, blackberry, rosemary essence and a touch of dried mint. The tannins show some fine texture or graininess on the close, but the richness of the mouthfeel washes smoothly over any rough edges. This wine has the depth and width to pair with a succulent steak in cream and pepper sauce." Robert Parker

      “Montiano” Merlot Lazio IGP 2017

      Intense, seductive aroma of sweet spices, tobacco, dark cherries and wild berries. In addition, the perfectly corresponding taste of enormous elegance, fruit richness, complexity, structure and length. A wonderful, dreamlike wine. SUPERIORE.DE

      "Dark shining ruby red. Complex and clear nose, finely marked by noble woods, blackberries, blackcurrants, some liquorice and leather. Shows great melting fruit core on the palate, elegant and tightly woven tannin accompanies the course, with pressure and finesse, long final." Falstaff

      "A sleek, harmonious red, medium- to full-bodied, with fine-grained tannins enmeshed with flavors of cassis and black cherry fruit, apple wood smoke and bay leaf. The firm finish is well-spiced and lingering." Wine Spectator

      "Amazingly fresh and minty, dusty even, the 2017 Merlot Montiano wafts up with hints of candied citrus, wild berries and sage. It's rich, succulent and round, with ripe red and blue berries, minerals and inner animal muskiness. This shows the warmth and dry conditions of the year, yet with refinement. The 2017 finishes with a saturation of primary fruits and spices offset by hints of tangerine and lifting inner florals, while remaining surprisingly mouthwatering, so lively and fresh. Such balance mixed with power and structure makes this an atypical expression of the vintage, and one worth checking out." Vinous

      "So much going on here with overtures of blackberries, dark cherries and finer, spicier notes of saffron, paprika and dried cloves. Excellent composure for a vintage such as 2017. The resoluteness of the tannins tames the wild dark fruit here, giving a clear indication of ripeness, but also structure and finesse." James Suckling

      "The Cotarella Montiano project is a fluid, ever-changing program that adds focus and intensity with each successive vintage. The Falesco Famiglia Cotarella 2017 Montiano (a celebrated expression of Merlot) is vibrant and spicy with immediate vertical lift and dark fruit intensity. Grapes are sourced from two sites, one with clay soils and one with volcanic soils, so you get textural structure and aromatic lift in this clever blend. Grapes are hand selected, berry by berry, on the sorting table. The wine is redolent of dark fruit and blackberry with a hint of bright mint on the close. To summarize, this is a terrific bottle."
