Appellation: DOC Colli Euganei
Grape Varieties: 100% Merlot
100% Merlot from the Appenine
hills north of Padova, in the region of the Veneto, the land of Venice and Verona. Merlot, a grape prone to rot, grows well here,
in a climate moderated by Lake Garda on the
west and the Adriatic Sea to the east, which allows the grapes to reach
full maturity by virtue of a warm breeze that helps to promotes ripeness
and keeps growing conditions dry and temperate, thus inhibiting the
tendency of the tight bunches of Merlot to produce mold if moisture is
present in the grape clusters.
Soft and easy drinkability characterize
this delicious, light, medium-dry wine. A mild, herbal bouquet; gentle, plummy fruit; and low tannins lend the wine to many
applications - as a simple, pleasant sipping wine, with such food as
light meat and poultry creations, vegetarian dishes and even certain
seafood preparations. Good wine at a good price!
