MERLOT , IGT VENEZIA GIULIA

Alc. 12,5 % by vol.

Hand harvested.

Once the grapes have been separated from the stems , the cool temperature maceration / fermentation phase is completed within around 10 days. The wine is left to settle after the pressing process, then it is racked into stainless steel tanks where it goes through the natural process of malolactic fermentation, which is the conversion of harsher Malic acid to a softer Lactic acid. The presence of Lactic acid promotes a subtle rounder wine that is pleasantly mellow and less abrasive to the palate.

A bright, pretty shade of attention grabbing ruby intensity. The pallet is puréed raspberries and strawberries with a clean and youthful lengthy finish.
Slightly vegetal both on the nose and the palate when young , but capable of a long ageing and a development of a rich bouquet.

Corked with composite DIAM corks.

Serve at 18° C.
