MERLOT DEL VENETO IGT 2016

SANTA MARGHERITA

Regular price $129.00

GRAPES: Merlot 100%

PRODUCTION AREA: Veneto

VINIFICATION: the grapes are harvested towards the end of September. Maceration takes place  in  contact  with  the  skins  for  10/12  days  at  a  temperature  of  28°  C  (82° F). During this period, the wine is pumped periodically over the skins in  order  to  obtain  optimum  extraction  of  the  anthocyanins  and  tannins.  The alcoholic fermentation is completed and the malolactic takes place in stainless steel vats. In February part of the wine is transferred into smaller steel  tanks.  The  rest  goes  into  French  oak  barriques  to  mature.  The  two  wines are then blended together in almost equal parts.

TASTING NOTE: the wine has a bright, deep ruby red color, which is almost purple when young.Its  bouquet  is  broad  and  persistent,  fine  and  elegant,  with  hints  of  ripe  cherries  and  plums  against  a  background  of  vanilla  and  violets.  On  the  palate, it is dry, well-balanced, velvety and full-bodied, with tannins that are well integrated with the wine’s appealing freshness.

FOOD PAIRINGS: it goes very well with pasta dishes with strongly flavored sauces, roast red meats or mature cheeses.

ALCOHOL CONTENT: 13,50% vol.

SERVING TEMPERATURE: 18 - 20 °C (64 - 68 °F)
