Wine Advocate-Parker : This is a wine of lofty ambitions and soaring promises. At this price point, it would be impossible to expect less. The 2015 Maremma Toscana Baffonero (100% Merlot) is indeed a beautiful and persuasive wine. It opens to an inky dark color with rich concentration and a full-bodied approach. It flows over the palate with enriched texture. The finish is smooth, seamless and powerful. This vintage is coming together nicely despite the evidently ripe and sweet quality of fruit. Cherry liqueur, blackberry preserves, cinnamon and honey-roasted almond emerge from the bouquet.
