CASTELLO DI AMA L'Apparita 2007

L’Apparita has enjoyed cult status as a ‘super-Tuscan’ right from its first vintage in 1985. A blend of Merlot, Canaiolo and Malvasia, the fruit is sourced from a small 3.84ha plot within the Bellavista vineyard, at an elevation of 490 metres. The grapes are destemmed, lightly crushed and fermented in stainless steel tanks with regular pump overs before being blended and transferred to 50% new and one year old French barriques for 18 months maturation. Fruit forward and modern, L’Apparita typically displays immense concentration, superb volume of fruit and excellent length.
