The 2013 Valletta is a blend of equal parts Sangiovese and Merlot from the Bär family's holdings in Panzano, just a stone's throw away from Rampolla. Black cherry, plum, lavender, mint and spice all meld together in an effortless wine endowed with a real sense of grace. Beams of supporting acidity and minerality give the wine its proportion while the oak is already nicely integrated for a young wine.

A mix of Merlot and Sangiovese, the 2013 Valletta is a beautiful wine with bold intensity that needs a few minutes to emerge from the glass. This wine needs a little time to open, but once it does it offers a long succession of thick berry flavors that are enhanced by spice, leather, tobacco and balsam herb. This vintage shows evident balance and harmony with integrated acidity that keeps the palate refreshed. Successful pairing options would include succulent pork or grilled lamb chops. - Monica Larner

A fresh and vibrant red with dried cherries, hints of fresh herbs and flowers. Full body, bright acidity and a clean, silky finish. A blend of merlot and sangiovese. Drink or hold.

This 50/50 blend of Sangiovese and Merlot offers aromas of black cherry, wildflowers, savory herbs and hints of mint on an inviting nose. A bright core of acidity keeps the wine vibrant, while the red fruit glides across the palate with silky texture and lingers on a long, clean finish. Expressive and balanced, this is an excellent value to drink now and for the next 4-6 years.
