Wine Maker Notes
100% Merlot. It is a varietal that matures around the middle of September.Collected from the grapes of perfect phenolic and aromatic maturity. De-stemming and alcoholic fermentation with the skins occurs at 80 degrees for 10 days. Malolactic maturation occurs with selected bacteria, then finally maturation for 10 months in French barriques that are at least 2-3 years old.
Pairs well with seasonal cold cuts, vegetable soup, grilledmeats, roasts, boiled meats and savory cheeses. Its delicatestructure and the light character of fragrant fruit makes theMerlot the ideal companion for a dish that would ordinarily notbe easily paired like a timbale of tagliolini and artichokes.
