The red wine you imagine:
very generous and true to its terroir
In the Collio Area it is the red wine par excellence so it was a natural choice for us to make it our first organic red wine. Born under the sign of fire, it generously offers a cornucopia of emotions. One that is easy to love, Merlot is deep and round. It is a superb mirror of the vintage, changing every year though remaining true to itself.

The grapes are de-stemmed and left to macerate with the skins and their natural yeasts for a long time. During this period, fermentation is assisted by regular remontage, delestage and air mixing. Once racked, the wine ages for several months before being bottled.
Warm and fruit-driven with lots of cherry and red berries. Its color is a deep ruby red. On the nose it displays morello cherry and little wild berries followed by pronounced spice. In the mouth it is sure-footed, well-orchestrated and pervasive. It offers redcurrant, blueberry and liquorice with pronounced balsamic notes.
Excellent long finish.
It beautifully complements charcoal-grilled red meats, and is particularly intriguing paired with hard cheeses (Montasio Stravecchio, Parmigiano Reggiano and Pecorino Sardo) and blue cheeses (Gorgonzola and Roquefort).
