MERLOT – Still red wine obtained from Merlot grapes.
Red wine obtained from Merlot grapes of our ancient vineyard situated in a favourable position. Particular attention is paid to the summer pruning of the grapes and during the wine-making phase to the maceration with “remontage” (or pumping over), and punching down to facilitate the extraction of the substances present in the skin.
The polyphenols. This is a wine of outstanding elegance, with a garnet red colour and purplish highlights. The bouquet is dominated by grassy notes sweetened by hints of berries and spices. The dry flavour is harmoniously balanced and long-lasting. It is ideal for wintertime risotto, first courses with meat sauce, entrées with red meats, or stews, goulash, and aged cheeses
