L'Apparita 2006 (Double Magnum)Castello di Ama
|Brand||Castello di Ama|
The 2006 L’Apparita (Merlot) reveals gorgeous clarity and precision. It is another large-scaled, dramatic wine, rich in baritone notes of dark fruit, menthol, herbs, licorice and new leather. The tannins build mightily on the vibrant finish, yet this remains an impeccable, polished wine of remarkable beauty. I only hope to have a chance to taste the wine again in the future?.amazingly today it tastes just like it did from tank in November 2006! Anticipated maturity: 2016-2022. I am not sure I possess the vocabulary to do these majestic wines – the reds in particular – justice. Simply put, Castello di Ama’s 2006s are spectacular and every bit as magnificent as they were when I tasted them late that year. Simply put, this is a profound set of new releases from Marco and Lorenza Pallanti. Sadly, few readers are likely to have an opportunity to experience the top wines, as pricing is way up in the stratosphere.

Wonderful crushed berry and jam aromas, with hints of black olives and herbs. Full-bodied, with soft and refined tannins, pretty fruit and a mineral and floral aftertaste. Merlot.
