The 2015 Cont'Ugo, 100% Merlot, from the Antinori family's Guado al Tasso property, captures all the radiance and natural intensity of the year. Sweet red cherry, pomegranate, spice and floral notes abound. What is most surprising about the 2015 is the level of aromatic freshness that Antinori has preserved. There is plenty of depth and textural richness, but the redder color and brighter fruit profile are both the result of keeping more leaf cover, picking earlier and a lighter hand in vinification. This is a fabulous wine for the vintage.

A fresh, plump and alluring red, this features plenty of black cherry, plum, violet, cedar and earth flavors, with dusty tannins providing grip. Eases into a long, fruit- and tobacco-filled finish. Merlot. Best from 2019 through 2028. 500 cases imported.

This is a pure merlot from a special parcel that shows wonderful finesse and depth. Medium body, ultra-fine tannins and a long and polished finish. A beauty. Drink now or hold for 2019.
