Typical Geographical Indication

Produced with selected grapes, it is a wine that seeks to enhance the fresh and fruity aromas of its 100% Merlot composition.
The grapes are picked manually and after de-stemming and soft pressing, are fermented using indigenous yeast in steel vats filled to no more than two-thirds of their capacity. The fermentation process lasts about a week at controlled temperatures from 28 to 30 degrees. A short manual re-passing of the must and pomace are completed in the initial phase.
Part of the wine is aged for few months in steel tanks and part in wooden barrels where the malolactic fermentation takes place. After blending, before bottling, a light filtration is carried out. The release of this wine occur after a few months of rest in the bottle.
Our Merlot has a fruity and floral freshness. Due to the particular fragrance, we recommend drinking it within the first 4 to 5 years of its life.
