Merlot has always been one of the most popular wines throughout the world due to its roundness and versatility, as it can be used pure – current or aged – or blended with other wines to improve their balance. Its ruby red colour is not particularly deep, revealing its nature as an easy-going wine ideal for everyday drinking with food. Its nose shows very delicate floral notes, which combine nicely with aromas of fresh berry fruit and wild cherry. The well-orchestrated, balanced and slightly tannic palate boasts an attractive plush finish. Serve at 15–18° C to enhance its freshness. An excellent wine to accompany pasta with meat sauce, meat-filled crepes, egg pasta, lean meats (preferably white) and light starters. Perfect with pork (e.g. sweet and sour), sausages and cooked charcuterie products (mortadella, Veneto sopressata, etc.) and with fresh soft or pasta filata cheeses.

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.
