Tasting Notes

Vinous – 100

The 2015 La Ricolma, San Giusto’s 100% Merlot, is absolutely riveting from the very first taste. Dark, vibrant and explosive, the 2015 retains tremendous freshness and nuance for a wine from this vintage. The marriage of fruit intensity, energy and purity is nothing short of captivating. Readers will have to give the 2015 a few years to settle down post bottling, but it is a remarkable wine that just needs time to fully emerge. The 2015 was aged in French oak, with about 40% new barrels. [Antonio Galloni, 22/02/2019]

Robert Parker – 98

“Wow, the 2015 La Ricolma is wine that leaves you speechless-quite literally-because you’ll want to focus all your attention on drinking it. This pure expression of Merlot from one of Italy’s most blessed growing sites is an outstanding wine. There’s so much beauty and intensity here, it’s hard to know where to begin. The bouquet bursts open with black fruit, spice and leather. The combined effect of the wine’s extreme integration is so smooth and silky to the palate. That Merlot softness wraps over and caresses the senses with care and grace. This is a medium to full-weight wine, but ultimately, its texture is lighter and more streamlined than you might expect. This is a crucial key to what makes this wine so profoundly attractive. Only 5,780 bottles were made.” [Monica Larner, 31/10/2018]

Anticipated maturity: 2020-2045
