San Giusto a Rentennano La Ricolma 2018 (75 cl)
Merlot
Italy

Average review score: 98,0

Robert Parker: 97   Vinous : 99      

An "Icon" that we will have to wait 4 to 5 years for the tannins to melt and further improve the complexity, although this seems impossible as it is already immense.
This wine is characterized by its purity, its velvety, an incredible richness of black fruits but with a delicacy full of nuance. At the bend of the path, we discover black cherries, there a stick of liquorice, or even an intoxicating smell of menthol accompanied by sage.
The mouth would like to never leave these perfumes which dress it with sensuality and elegance. 

To taste with veal kidneys or veal escalopes with marsala.  

 

Robert Parker: 97/100 

The Merlot opens with a rich and velvety concentration with a lot of black intensity. Italians might call it "una bomba", or a veritable bombshell of fruity bounty and beauty. The organic grapes are fermented in stainless steel vats for 18 days and aged in French barrels for 22 months. This rather simple winemaking method allows to obtain a deep purity and persistence of the fruit. The tannins are still tight and catchy, and this is a more controversial point that I have discovered through many wines that I have tasted in 2018. This wine will have to be given more time to evolve and mellow. The production is 5,994 bottles, 315 magnums and 33 double magnums.

Vinous: 99/100

La Ricolma 2018 is a wine of incredible finesse. Granted, the 2018 doesn't have the explosive depth or intensity of 2015 or 2016, but it makes up for it with its persistence and nuance. Black cherry jam, licorice, spices, menthol, and sage all blend effortlessly as the 2018 begins to open with a little aeration. The 2018 spent 22 months in French oak, of which around 35% was new wood.
