Wine SpectatorAromas of blackberry, with hints of black olive. Medium-bodied, with fine tannins and a smoky berry aftertaste. Surprisingly forward. Merlot. Drink now.

Wine AdvocateThe 2005 Cortona Merlot Desiderio is a plump, juicy wine loaded with sweet dark fruit, plums, chocolate and toasted oak. This supple wine possesses excellent up-front weight, but the intensity trails off a little on the mid-palate. It, too, should drink well relatively early. Anticipated maturity: 2008-2015.

Antonio Galloni, June 2008
