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.

My merlot-of-choice is Ricolma.  It is less elegant and more powerful compared to L'Apparita but, at roughly 50 Euros, it is better value.  And when I want a merlot with elegance, I reach for Piantonaia. 

This ^^   👍🏼👍🏼

I have 24 bottles of various vintages of Ricolma and I'm always on the lookout for more. A taut and structured Merlot. The 2006 is drinking beautifully right now with a 1-2 hour decant.
