Beschreibung by Antonio Galloni The 2018 Merlot Liu’ is a new wine in this range that emerges from some of the newer plantings on the estate. Dark fruit, grilled herbs, menthol and licorice open up first, followed by a range of earthy, savory notes that give the wine so much character and distinctiveness. This is serious Merlot. I would give it a year or two in bottle, as the tannins are pretty imposing today. Think of it as a bridge between the Chianti Classico and the dual flagships Sammarco and d’Alceo. 94P Antonio Galloni

Here’s a new wine from this historic estate in Panzano in Chianti. A pure expression of Merlot, the Castello dei Rampolla 2018 Liù moves slowly in the glass, swirling around at its own pace, showing the extra richness and softness of the variety. The wine is saturated and dense, packed tight with dried blackberry, plum and crème de cassis. Light touches of spice, smoke and mahogany appear at the back, but not in an overpowering or heavy-handed manner. The wine is firmly structured at the back, holding all that abundant fruit in balance. You would do well to give the wine a few more years to unwind and soften. 94P Monica Larner
