Merlot del Veneto IGT 2020

Santa Margherita

Regular price $129.00

TECHNICAL DESCRIPTION

Grapes: Merlot 100%

Production zone: 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¬į¬† C¬† (82¬į 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.

Alcohol Content: 13,50% vol.

Serving Temperature: 18 - 20 ¬įC (64 - 68 ¬įF)

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.

PAIRINGS NOTES

It goes very well with pasta dishes with strongly flavoured sauces, roast red meats or mature cheeses.
