The 2011 Paleo Rosso gives you every reason to fall in love. What impresses the most is the floral imprint this 100% Cabernet Franc offers on the bouquet. It’s really quite remarkable: Pressed rose and dried lavender are almost perfume-like in intensity. In fact, I can’t remember a past edition of Paleo with a bouquet of this unique caliber. It boasts a huge sense of textural richness, with polished tannins and thick, dark extraction. The 2011 Paleo is particularly monumental in the mouth. Give it five to ten years to settle.||I was absolutely impressed with this new set of releases from Cinzia Merli and consulting enologist Luca D’Attoma. The biggest surprise, however, is the 2011 Scrio (100% Syrah) that embraces the warmth of the vintage with impeccable precision and elegance. So much attention in the past has been paid to Messorio and Paleo, but the 2011 vintage finally sees Scrio in the spotlight. eRobertParker.com.October, 2014
