Average critic rating : 90.0 points



A remarkable achievement in the so-so 1992 vintage for Tuscany, Castello di Ama's 1'Apparita, a 100% Merlot that has been barrel-fermented and aged in new barriques, exhibits an opaque purple color, followed by an exceptionally rich, black-cherry-scented nose with licorice, chocolate, and smoky new oak characteristics. Full-bodied yet extravagantly smooth, rich, and luscious, this intense, beautifully made wine is already delicious to drink, although it is still unevolved. Based on how well past vintages have aged, the 1992 should last for 12-15+ years. The first vintage of this luxury-priced Merlot was 1985. In May, 1997, I tasted a bottle of the 1985 from my cellar and found it to be still youthful and impressive. Wine Advocate.August, 1997
