Vineyards Selected grapes come from the most renowned regions of Italy. Mainly clay soils.
Winemaking Only fully mature grapes are used, in order to achieve the maximum expression of Merlot’s varietal character. The grapes are hand-picked and left to macerate with the skins for about 15 days. The wine is fermented in temperature-controlled stainless steel tanks and then undergoes malolactic fermentation. 10% of the wine is aged for 4 months in both American and French oak barrels before blending and bottling to add structure and character.
Tasting Notes Color: Bright ruby red.
Bouquet: Cranberries, cherries, plums and raspberries.
Taste: Bright black-cherry character enhanced by hints of licorice, vanilla and clove derived from the wood
aging. A dry saovouy and harmonic taste with
a disctinct finish of wild berries.
Food Pairing Ideal with grilled red meats, cold meats, and semi-aged cheeses.
