Once again, La Regola surprises us for the richness and complexity of its wines: the French varieties find a particularly favorable territory in Riparbella, which allows them to develop their characteristics in their best expressions. The Riparbella area, indeed, is one of those areas to be kept under observation in Tuscany for its potential. It was already planted with vines at the times of the Etruscans and has shown all its character in recent years, receiving huge appreciation from both some of the most renowned critics and the media, allowing predictions of a significant increase in the value of the wines from these lands. Strido is a pure Merlot that will be able to develop its qualities in the coming decades and combined with the growing commercial value of its production area it can be considered a very interesting investment.
“Strido” is a pure Merlot, the result of the manual harvesting of the grapes that lie on a pebbly and flat ground reminiscent of those of Bordeaux. The dress is rich and of a violet-purple color, impenetrable. The aromas are equally intense, mulberry and purple lilies, sweet tobacco, and even balsamic notes of laurel and mint. In the mouth it is voluptuous and enveloping, both the tannins still young and the velvety body satisfy the palate, thanks to the almost chewable texture. Very long finish.
This chart has the only aim of giving a preliminary idea of the price history of the wine in wine-searcher.com. It’s just a partial information, the only global readily available, since many factors influence the price in wine-searcher.com and are neither strictly related with the quality performances of the wine nor with its scarcity/abundance on the market.
