Rating: 94/100 points, James Suckling
Desiderio is the name of a bull that lived on Avignonesi’s Capezzine Farm more than one hundred years ago, and that has become something of a legend. In fact, at his time Desiderio was the largest bull in Tuscany and because of his excellent genes, this majestic animal helped refine and define the Chianina cattle race, specific to our region. It came as a natural choice to dedicate this Merlot to the beloved bull, as a testimony of the wine’s origins, and as a symbol of its powerful, yet sensuous character.
Intense, deep red in colour, the main trait of Desiderio 2015 is the harmony between the sweet fruity notes, typical to Merlot, and the power, testament of the 2015 vintage. The bouquet is deeply endowed with black currant, myrtle, eucalyptus and black cherries. Very savoury, with hints of incense, the wine has velvety tannins and impressive persistence. Son of a warm vintage, vinified with great finesse.
