    "Tresette" Merlot Toscana IGT 2016

    This is the first vintage of the new pure Merlot of the house. The name Tresette is derived from the fact that there will be just 2,800 bottles of this wine, which will be aged in three 700l French oak barrels. The grapes come from old vines from a 480m high plot and it is only vinified in the best years. Tresette is a cool, archetypal Merlot of the very elegant type and is completely in keeping with the style of the house. Juicy blackberry, in the nose clove, herbs and spice notes. Wrapped in smooth tannins, this fresh red leads to a delicious finish. SUPERIORE.DE

    "From a vineyard of only 0.7 hectares at 480 metres above sea level, matures for 20 months in 7 hectolitre barrels: Seductive blackberry aroma, underlaid with notes of liquorice; juicy in the mouth, the tannins and acidity in harmony, elegant and polished final. Convincing." Vinum

    " Firm, quite deep, slightly iodine scent of black currant and red berries with herbal aromas, some nuts, blood, black olives and moderate wood spice as well as mineral notes. Firm, ripe, tart, yet extremely juicy fruit, tight, quite fine tannin and a certain acid bite, persistent on the palate, herbal and planty notes, a hint of pepper, clear, salty and chalky minerality, has power, but also freshness and cooling elements, noble spice, very lively, multi-layered and deep, very good, tight, juicy and finely spicy finish. Great." Wein-Plus

    "Named after the Italian card game, the 2016 TreSette (777) is a pure expression of Merlot from old vines. Only 2,800 bottles were made. Riecine's La Gioia once had Merlot in the blend, but it was removed to make this wine instead. This wine offers a generous bouquet with blackcurrant and cherry. However, the high altitudes of the vineyards shape crisp and acidic fruit that is very evident in this slightly cooler vintage." Robert Parker

    "This is a pretty wild and amazing on the nose with crystal-clear aromas of lavender, before the bay leaves, Thai basil, cloves and a touch of vanilla come into play. Medium to full body, incredibly edgy acidity and layer after layer of pure blue fruits. An outstanding wine with few parallels in Italy. One of a kind." James Suckling
