I tasted L'Apparita years ago with the producer and Vinaigre(mtl formumite) when she came to Montréal. I believe it was the 2004 vintage. The wine was nice and elegant but not at all worth the 149$ price tag they were selling it for back then.
Absolutely, and not just the 2004 but the 2014 as well. There's so much good wine in Tuscany that we did not find the Castello di Ama wines were worth the price of admission. You're paying for the brand name for what it's worth and from a QPR perspective, it fell short.
