(AG=97) Trinoro's 2012 Palazzi, 100% Merlot, is flat-out stunning. Beautifully textured and layered in the glass, the 2012 boasts superb depth and intensity, not to mention fabulous overall balance. Dark raspberries, flowers, mint and new leather are some of the many notes that resonate on the finish. What a fabulous wine this is. Wow! (WS=91) This rich style is spiked with black cherry and black currant flavors, and tinged with violet, anise and tobacco notes. Firm and intense, persisting through the long, tarry finish. Merlot. Best from 2016 through 2023. 500 cases made.
