Vineyards are located in the hilly area of Monzambano, a little town close to the southern shore of Lake Garda.
Harvest and vinification
The merlot harvest begins the first week of October. Before being softly pressed the grapes are dried for about 2 months in a special room with controlled temperature and humidity. Maceration takes place on the skins for 10-14 days at controlled temperature, in order to enable complete extraction of the wine’s ripe fruit aromas. After a year in stainless steel tanks the wine is refind in wood casks for about 12 months.
Its colour is deep , velvety red. On the nose it has dried plum, cherry, spices, leather with a smoky hint of tabacco on the nose. The ripe red fruits melt with a good acidity and smooth tannins on the palate. An elegant wine with a superb structure, full-bodied and rounded.
