Deep ruby red in color with purple highlights, Girolamo offers sumptuous aromas of black raspberries, blackberries, blueberries, sweet spice, and vanilla with hints of chocolate and dried herbs. On the palate, Girolamo has a soft and silky texture, backed by a sweet, firm tannins ending with a long, fruit-laden finish. Serve with rosemary pork roast with berry port wine sauce.

Wine AdvocateAll Merlot, the 2010 Girolamo seems to have absorbed all the extra sunshine of the vintage. The bouquet is redolent of ripe strawberry, blackberry preserves and sweet baking spice that feel a little heavy-footed and one-dimensional. Girolamo is one of the best expressions of the grape from central Italy. Although this wine is finely crafted, I can't say this is my favorite vintage.

Wine EnthusiastThis Tuscan Merlot has a fragrance of ripe plum, berry and cocoa. The palate delivers black currant layered with chocolate and finishes on a drying note of wood. It doesn't have much complexity but it has very attractive fruit.
