The 2008 La Ricolma (Merlot) is brilliant. Layers of well-articulated fruit, violets and minerals come together beautifully in the glass in this brilliant Ricolma. The wine possesses dazzling inner perfume and tons of freshness all the way through to the pure, chiseled finish. I especially like the balance of opulence and vibrancy here. This is a hugely impressive effort from San Giusto a Rentennano, not to mention easily one of the finest wines made in central Tuscany in 2008. Anticipated maturity: 2016-2028.

San Giusto is a reference-point estate that encapsulates so many of the artisan values that make the best wines of Tuscany so appealing. The Baroncole remains San Giusto’s least consistent wine, but all of the other reds are flying very high these days. The sweet San Giusto is an extreme wine, so it is only natural that some years are better than others.(eRobertParker)



La Ricolma is made from 100% Merlot grapes especially seclected from prime vineyards and hand-picked when perfectly mature. It is fermented in stainless steel tanks for about 18 days, then racked and pressed. After it is racked once again, the wine is left to mature for 20-22 months in French oak barriques. It is bottled unfiltered and held in bottle for another 6 months before being released.

During spring and summer we enjoyed average rainfall and temperatures. The grapes were ripening fairly slowly until the end of August. However, some rain and a great difference between day and night temperatures brought the grapes to a perfect level and this is very apparent in this vintage. The wine is intensely flavoured, elegant and well rounded.We harvested these grapes later than is usual in Tuscany. This wine is very intensely flavoured, long, persistent and extremely well rounded. Altogether a great year. Wherever necessary, from 20 to 30% of the grapes were removed from the vines when they were well into production. Best between 2009-2019 and beyond. Serve at 17 to 18°C As the wine is unfiltered, there could be a slight deposit at the bottom of the bottle.(San Giusto A Rentennano)
