Aromas of blackberry, barley and rose follow through to a full body, with chewy tannins and a long finish. Loads of new wood. Needs time. Best after 2010. 420 cases made. –JS
One of Italy’s great Merlots, the 2010 La Ricolma pours into the glass with inky black concentration and elegant aromas that spread far beyond the confines of your stemware. The wine radiates black fruit and spice and resonates with minute background tones of dried prune, clove, tar, licorice and pencil shaving. The tannins are young and astringent at this tasting but La Ricolma promises a slow evolution ahead. Anticipated maturity: 2018-2035.
