The 2007 L'Apparita is a bit richer and deeper than the 2009, but it never loses its essential personality. Hints of tertiary complexity are just beginning to develop now that the 2007 has been in bottle for a few years, but the wine is in an in between stage where it is neither young nor mature. Tobacco, wild flowers and menthol are some of the many nuances that emerge over time, but today the 2007 isn't quite ready to show all of its cards. Personally, I would wait a few years more. This is a stunning Apparita from Castello di Ama. Even though 2007 is regarded as warm vintage, this fruit did not come in until September 17, slightly late by Ama's historical standards. -- Antonio Galloni

This pure, fresh red is laced with aromas and flavors of blackberry, raspberry, flowers and mineral, with well-integrated oak lending support rather than make-up. Despite the concentration and intensity, there is an elegance to the wine, and the vibrant structure just keeps driving the fruit and spice aftertaste. Merlot. Best from 2013 through 2028. 70 cases imported.–BS

It's very reserved, yet you see the dense fruit and structure here. This is famous pure Merlot. Give it until 2014 to open on the palate.

Dense ruby colour and floral, macerated violet perfume. The luscious fruit of plum and cherry jam suggests an enveloping palate with pronounced velvety tannins and a long, delicate acidity. The bouquet’s development is coming into its own now, confirming this so-called supertuscan's ability to age. Chocolate-laced fruit and dark tobacco complete the finish with a slightly green, bitter end. As proprietor Lorenza Sebasti comments, 'Our model is Audrey Hepburn, not Sofia Loren'.
