“Immediately alluring aromas of ripe black currant and blackberry waft from the glass, framed by spicy oak. Picks up earth, leather and tar notes, layered through the long finish. Balanced and long. Merlot. Best from 2020 through 2035.”

96 International Wine Report

“The 2015 Palazzi is a simply exceptional wine from Tenuta di Trinoro. This 100% Merlot was sourced from about two hectares of vines in the vineyards of Tenaglia Est and Strada Vecchia and spent 8 months in new French oak barrels; 11 months in cement tanks before bottling. The result is a simply fascinating wine which begins to slowly release gorgeous aromas of ripe blackberries, fresh red currants and dark cherries, which are nuanced by spring florals with hints of fresh mushroom, licorice and forest herbs. On the palate this possesses a full body with outstanding overall structure and concentration. It continues to impress with its remarkable balance and focus, as fresh red and black fruits combine with dark chocolate and earth flavors to linger on the finish. The purity is fruit is striking, as this seems to improve with each second in the glass. Powerful, classy and sophisticated, this is one of the finest Merlot’s being made in Italy.”

95 Antonio Galloni - Vinous

“The 2015 Palazzi, 100% Merlot, is one of the more expressive wines in this range of 2015s. Radiant, plush and seductive, with tremendous richness, the 2015 is all class. Nothing in particular stands out. Instead, it is the wine’s sublime elegance and total sense of finesse that rule the day. All the elements simply fall into place. There is so much to like in this stunningly beautiful wine from Trinoro.”

94+ Monica Larner - Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

“The 2015 Palazzi is a spectacular wine, truly spectacular. This pure expression of Merlot just pushes all the right gustatory buttons in this warm and exuberant vintage. The bouquet is seamless and generous, yet it is also built tight and heavy like a tank. It exerts power and elegance with effortless abandon. The bouquet peels back to reveal deep layers of black fruit, prune, spice, leather and cured tobacco. The mouthfeel is still a bit raw and astringent, but the quality of the tannins is evident nonetheless. The wine really requires another 5 years or so of bottle aging.”
