Tasting Notes

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
