Alto Adige Merlot DOC


  • Tasting notes

    Originally from Bordeaux, Merlot has been producing impressive wines in South Tyrol for well over a century.
    Full, vivid ruby in colour, the nose shows plums, spice and forest berry fruits, while on the palate it is full-bodied and elegant, medium-rich, round, ripe with the smooth tannins typical of the Merlot grape, moving on to a long, full finish.

    Cellaring potential: 2 – 4 years.

    Steak, braised beef or lamb, rich vegetarian dishes prepared with garlic and freshly gathered herbs, and hard cheeses.
