Recanati Merlot is a medium bodied dry wine with a brilliant garnet color. Its robust fruity aroma of plum jam, fresh red berries, and pomegranate is accented by touches of caramel, cloves and vanilla.
Select grapes are hand-picked in mid-September. Following a gentle crushing, the grapes undergo a cold maceration prior to fermentation to preserve their rich fruit character. The resulting wine is aged eight months in French and American oak barrels before bottling and release.
Well matched with grilled red meats, poultry and flavorful pasta dishes, as well as a variety of Mediterranean-style entrées. Serve at room temperature or slightly chilled.
