Monica Larner (Robert Parker): “Beautifully delicious, 93+ points”

We are thrilled to share the following review of the 2016 Sansonina Merlot by leading Italian wine critic Monica Larner for Robert Parker.

Sansonina 2016 Merlot
93+ points

Beautifully delicious, the 2016 Merlot is an austere and proper expression of Merlot (made from fresh fruit) that stands tall and makes a great first impression. The wine is immediate and very open, but that does not mean it won’t hold for some near-term cellar aging. The bouquet shows cherry and sweet spice, all carefully dosed: not too strong and not too weak. I tasted bottle number 3,203.
