Merlot Etichetta Nera

This wine is the result of a careful personal selection from an ancient clone of Merlot, and for years have been the Standard Bearer of the red wines. At his first presentation it won two emblems (3 glasses) in the Gambero Rosso “Guide To The Wines of Italy”. Spicy with tones of chocolate and red fruits, it is soft on the tongue and has a lingering taste with hints of toasting given off by its tasting in 5hl. barrel of french oak. Ideal accompaiment to meat and cheese.
