That is the good news. But readers are going to have to give the 2015 at least another 8-10 years before the wine starts to drink well, as today, the flavors are remarkably primary. That is hardly a surprise given how this Tuscan thoroughbred ages. A rush of blackberry jam, spice, menthol, and graphite build into a crescendo of aromas, flavors and textures. Over the years, I have had the chance to take virtually every vintage of L'Apparita. There is little doubt the 2015 will soon take its place as one of the epic editions. -- Antonio Galloni

It's impossible not to be completely smitten by the 2015 L'Apparita. This pure expression of Merlot from Chianti Classico is an exceedingly smooth and enriched expression with abundant tones of black cherry, spice, chocolate and barbecue smoke. The mouthfeel is gorgeous, and although this wine is not as extracted or dense as past editions, it is far more finessed and elegant. You get a clear taste not only of the grape but of the gravely soils that make up this extraordinary territory. What could be better than Merlot and Tuscany blended together in a single bottle? - Monica Larner

Aromas of black olives and violets with black fruits following through to a full body with firm and silky tannins. An intense finish. Shows linear yet strong tannins. 100% merlot. Drink in 2020.

A burst of cherry, plum and berry aromas and flavors is accompanied by a vibrant, uplifting structure. Firms up quickly, yet the intense fruit flavors persist and return on the lingering, tobacco- and underbrush-tinged... A burst of cherry, plum and berry aromas and flavors is accompanied by a vibrant, uplifting structure. Firms up quickly, yet the intense fruit flavors persist and return on the lingering, tobacco- and underbrush-tinged finish. Excellent potential. Merlot. Best from 2022 through 2035. – BS
