MERLOT

Characteristics

This is a wine to be enjoyed while it is young and fresh, ideally at about 7° C.
A wine with a lovely, vibrant, ruby red colour, it has a characteristic, fragrant and heady nose that offers notes of fresh fruit and ripe strawberries, ending with scents of cherries.
In the mouth, it is pleasant, velvety and sweet but not cloying.
It goes extremely well with simple fare, including pasta with sauce, roasted white meat, Vicenza-style cod, creamed cod, fresh cheeses, frittatas and omelettes.

Vinification

Merlot is made from select Merlot grapes.
Manual harvest at optimum technological and phenolic ripeness, crushing-destemming, addition of cultured yeasts. Maceration for 6-7 days followed by drawing off the lees.
Pumpover repeated 3 or 4 times a day. Primary fermentation is followed by racking, light clarification to stabilise the proteins and subsequent filtration. Bottling is carried out several times a year in order to ensure that the product is always fresh: the wine is cold stabilised to avoid the precipitation of tartaric acid and bottled in sterile conditions following aseptic filtration.
