Merlot 2016

We say “MerlòT”, not “Merlò”

Varietal

Merlot 100%

Terroir, personality, and backbone.

A wine that has broad shoulders just like the mountains that border our region, from which it gets its rigorous personality. It expresses the strong character and the tenacity of Friuli Venezia Giulia and its people.

Harvest

Meticulous hand selection.

Vinification

Destemmed, the grapes ferment in stainless steel tanks at a temperature of 23-25°C. During this phase, we conduct several pumping over of the cap per day, in order to obtain a maximum extraction of color and sweet tannins.

Aging

For 12 months, half in oak barrels and half in stainless steel tanks. Bottle aged for an additional six months before release.

Ruby red with violet hues.

Aroma

Fragrant aromas of wild berries and herbaceous notes of violets.
