Riccitelli Patagonian Merlot 2016
A wonderfulrich, velvety merlot from Rio Negro in Patagonia and made by esteemed winemaker Matias Riccitelli, from 50 year old vines. The regions amazing combination of high altitude vineyards, warm days and cool nights give the wine real concentration and vibrancy. Copyright Jancis Robinson: "Seriously old-school Pomerol on the nose! Rich and gamey with masses of sweetness and a surprising amount of evolution on the nose. Definitely not bordeaux on the palate – a kick of dry minerals and masses more daytime sunshine than one would expect there. But a very fine wine. Velvety and as though iron filings were dissolved in it. Very interesting! Congratulations on scouting out this parcel of vines."
