Castello dei Rampolla Liù 2019
From 2018, Castello dei Rampolla releases Liu’, a new wine made from 100% Merlot, aged for 9 months on amphora and concrete. Once again, it is a particularly fine wine, we expected nothing less from this producer!
Wine Advocate (Monica Larner): “The Castello dei Rampolla 2019 Liù is a relatively new wine (the first vintage made was the 2018) and a pure expression of Merlot. The wine is generously endowed with lots of fruit flavor and a distinctive punchiness that adds a bright and lifted quality to the bouquet. It sports a mid-weight approach with plenty of summer fresh cherry, plum and other purple fruits. It’s hard not to feel immediately attracted to this wine, especially given its very vivid and bright personality. You’ll have a lot of fun drinking Liù straight out of the gate or likewise waiting for it to complete its bottle evolution.” 94+/100
Vinous (Antonio Galloni):” The 2019 Merlot Liú is another outrageously beautiful wine from Rampolla. Deep, inky and explosive, the 2019 possesses tremendous energy to match its purity of fruit. Blueberry, spice, leather, menthol ans espresso build into the potent, tannic finish.. Readers will find a serious Merlot packed with fruit and structure. Rampolla planted Merlot in 2000 and 2003 to soften Sammarco, but the vines turned out to be more productive than expected, giving birth to the Liú. The 2019 was aged in cement and terracotta. I am not entirely sure how Liú will mature, but I also doubt that will be much of a concern for the vast majority of readers.“94/100
