Critical Acclaim

ST92 Stephen Tanzer’s International Wine Cellar Sep/Oct 2012

"Saturated ruby. Wild aromas of blackberry, black cherry, pepper, truffle and minerals. Wonderfully dense and concentrated, with compelling black fruit and spice flavors that show a refined quality at the back. Finishes supple, with outstanding length and brightness. A very strong vintage for this merlot, from a hot year that might have led one to expect grittier tannins. Very well done." (92 pts.)

RP95 Robert Parker’s The Wine Advocate 30th Aug 2011

"The Poggio Ai Merli is Castellare’s single-vineyard Merlot. For whatever reason, it is not a wine I taste all that often, but I should, as the 2007 is a stunner. Dark cherries, scorched earth, smoke, licorice and leather are some of the aromas and flavors that burst from the glass in this huge, explosive wine. This is far from an easygoing, open 2007. Rather it is a wine that reconciles the opulence of the year with tons of underlying structure to the extent rarely seen in this vintage. The French oak (33% new) adds volume and depth, but without marking the wine at all. The 2007 Poggio ai Merli will be a jewel of a wine once the tannins start melting away. Anticipated maturity: 2017–2027." (95 pts.)

SP90 Wine Spectator Web only – 2009

"Violets and berries, with hints of green leaves and blackberry on the nose. Full-bodied, with chewy tannins and a medium finish. Not giving much right now. Needs time to open. Best after 2011. 450 cases made." (90 pts.)

WE91 Wine Enthusiast 3/1/2010

"Here’s a lively Tuscan Merlot with soft layers of spice and cola lavished over a solid core of black fruit. The aromas are pristine and focused and the wine makes an equally excellent impression in the mouth thanks to its soft, yielding tannins and sweet cherry flavors." (91 pts.)

Tuscany

There are few regions as picturesque as Italy's Tuscany. And there are few regions that produce finer wines, either. Tuscany is home to legendary wine regions Brunello di Montalcino and Chianti, among others, where the red wine grape Sangiovese is king. It's also home to "Super Tuscans," a category of Tuscan wines that don't officially fall within the Italian wine classification system.

Italy

Italy is famous for its powerful, sleek, and elegant reds wines from ancient growing areas with legendary names such as Chianti, Barolo, Barbaresco, Montepulciano. Italian white wines are also gaining popularity: Orvieto, Pinot Grigio, and Sauvignon are excellent examples of Italian white wines.

Wines of Italy are complex and flavorful, much like the culture that is their source and the cuisine that is their match.
