1997 Fattoria Valtellia, Il Duca, Tuscany, Italy

Also a 100% Merlot wine. Production 900 bottles. And to be up against Masseto is not easy and it is not far behind. A wine with a smoother surface. You also find mineral stones here, but a more exotic expression of the merlot grape with a higher level of alcohol and a sweeter and more overseas version. Taste is simply great and if the alcohol was replace by a more classic cut we would have had a equal rival to Masseto (96)

Tasted 1st of April 2005 - Era Ora
