Il nostro IX Prandone 2022 è stato inserito da Katie Kelly Bell della redazione di nella top ten dei migliori vini del 2023.   Il Conte Villa Prandone IX Prandone, IT, 2022: Made of 100% merlot aged for 15 months in barrel and 15 months in concrete, this richly textured expression comes from Italy’s less well-known Marche region—one that is full of gems to discover such as this one. The nose is ripe with morello cherry and red fruit notes, and on the palate you’ll get warm spices, cassis and a savory note that keeps the wine interesting. Best to open and let breathe in a decanter, or a wine glass, for an hour or so to get the best expression. It is polished and powerful—indeed, the winery notes that it can age up to 50 years. Buy one to sip and one to store. $80“.
