A feather-duster with the impact of a sledgehammer. Merlot is divine, but high-quality exemplars are rare on the market. Cicchitti has produced the laudable exception. Elegant and subtle – but with the necessary grit – this seductive drop takes its drinker on a true rollercoaster ride. Light-footed yet powerful, it fully – but gently – overwhelms the senses with its complex play of aromas. Fine plum and ripe red fruit alternate with tobacco, leather, and a beguiling fragrance redolent of sun-dried tomato. One bottle is hardly enough to capture its evolution in full. Though already wonderfully mature, cellaring it a bit longer cannot hurt either.

Pairings: Cheese platters, barbecues, vegetarian cuisine

Storage potential: 10 - 12 years (can be significantly longer under ideal conditions)
