The 2016 Ampio delle Mortelle needs time to shed some of its considerable power. Red cherry, plum, licorice and dried herbs gradually emerge from behind a wall of tannin. Readers need to be patient. I won't be surprised if the 2016 is even better with some time in bottle. ... More details

Enticing aromas of cassis, black-skinned berry, graphite and eucalyptus take center stage on this Carménère, Cabernet Franc and Cabernet Sauvignon blend. The concentrated, balanced palate doles out black plum jam, star anise, cocoa and vanilla alongside fine-grained tannins. Enjoy 2022–2030.

Rated 92 by Wine Advocate
The 2016 Ampio delle Mortelle is Carmenère with smaller parts Cabernet Sauvignon and Cabernet Franc. The wine delivers tangy and almost raw berry aromas with plenty of dark spice, tar and leather along the way. It is packed tight with savory black fruit at its core, with soft tannins and thick concentration at the back.

Rated 92 by Wine Spectator
A ripe style, this offers plum, blackberry and vanilla aromas and flavors with hints of earth and dark chocolate. Firm tannins provide lift as the wine extends on the fruit- and spice-filled finish. Carmenère, Cabernet Sauvignon and Cabernet Franc. Best from 2022 through 2032. 547 cases made, 60 cases imported.

Region: Tuscany

The beautiful region of Tuscany has been associated with wine production for almost three thousand years, and as such is one of the oldest and most highly respected wine producing regions in the world. The hot, sunny climate supports quite a wide range of grapes, but the grape varietals most widely grown across this large region are Sangiovese and Vernaccia, both of which are used in the production of Tuscany's most distinctive red and white wines. Cabernet Sauvignon and other imported grape varietals have also flourished there for over two hundred years, but it wasn't until the 1970's and the rise of the 'Super Tuscans' that they were widely used, when the fine wineries of the region began experimenting with Bordeaux style red wines to great effect.

Country: Italy

For several decades in the mid to late twentieth century, Italy's reputation for quality wines took a fairly serious blow. This was brought about partly due to lack of regulation in certain regions, and too much regulation in others. This led to several wineries in the beautiful and highly fertile region of Tuscany making the bold move to work outside of the law, which they saw as responsible for the drop in quality in Tuscan wines. They believed that they had the expertise and the generations of experience necessary with which to make truly excellent, world class wines, and set about doing just that. These 'Super Tuscans', as they came to be known, quickly inspired the rest of Italy to improve their produce, and now, Italian wine producers in the twenty-first century are widely recognised to be amongst the best in the world. Regulation and law began to change, and wine drinkers across the globe woke up to the outstanding wines coming out of Italy, which are continuing to improve and impress to this day.
