99 Pts Luca Maroni - Annuario dei Migliori Vini Italiani
"A bluish blackish violet color ....The balance is between smoothness, acidity and tannin ... sweet fragrance of so much black, essential, creamy liquor. A fragrance of sap and unfading blackberry pulp, a sweetness spiced by the oak of outstanding purity and calibration" (Translated)
Luca Maroni awarded the Bollina "Athos" Toscana Rosso Corte Medicea 2014 99 points on his scale and much like the last vintage, we found the 2014 to be a stunning value from start to finish!
Italy, in general, has been a red hot area for value as of late but wines like this really drive this point home to an even greater extent. This full-bodied red exhibits incredible fruit and structure with a long, smooth finish. On top of that, this red is primed to drink now. No need to wait!!
The Bollina winery began production under its current ownership around 2011. The previously existing vineyard and wine cellar have undergone major renovations aimed towards modernization. The winemaking team works as a collaboration of a few wine professionals with many years worth of combined experience in viticulture and viniculture. The winemakers emphasize their enthusiasm for making wines using a pure and principled approach.
This is a monster of a wine with layer after layer of complexity and concentration. It's the kind of wine you might spend when buying a $30-$50 bottle from Napa. It's something that, in a brown bag, many of your Cabernet Sauvignon fans would rave over ... despite the fact that it is 100% Merlot.
We're talking intense ruby color here. This incredible Merlot from Tuscany is both complex and persistent on the palate. Medium to full bodied, expect notes of blackberry, cedar and smooth, big, lush tannins on the finish.
All in all, this is a spectacular wine for the money!!
