L’Apparita is the first wine 100% Merlot produced in Tuscany. It is a cult wine since its first release 1985. The small parcels forming our single vineyard L’Apparita extend on an area of 3.84 hectares and they are located on top of Bellavista Vineyard. Vines were firstly planted in 1975 with Canaiolo and Malvasia Bianca. They have been replanted between 1982 and 1985 with Merlot, using the clone nr 342. The training system at Open Lyre and the soil particularly rich with clay make this small Cru a jewel of the international wine production.

Colour: purple red with violet nuances. Impenetrable.

Aroma: red fruits, blackberry. Spicy such as vanilla, black pepper in grains and juniper. The finish has a balsamic note.

Taste: extremely elegant, smooth and enveloping, with a silky yet powerful tannin. Clearly fresh, very persistent,
never ending.
