MERLOT
Friuli Colli Orientali DOC

 

Grapes
Merlot

Description
Fresh, juicy, fragrant wine: the ageing polishes it and the result is savory, smooth, round. 
This red grape variety, originally from Gironde, has become very popular internationally, establishing itself in Friuli Venezia Giulia and in particular in the Friuli Colli Orientali DOC area, its best expression. It has been mentioned since the 18th century, but in Friuli it was described only at the end of the 19th century in the area of Cividale and in a 1921 exhibition. As early as 1933, Professor Dalmasso tasted excellent samples, as he wrote in “Agricoltura Friulana”, and after the Cividale Exhibition he considered Merlot a grape suitable for making wines for ageing as well.

Organoleptic description
Ruby red.
Clear scents of blackberries and raspberries along with hints of chocolate.
At the taste it shows a pleasing richness of flavor and velvety feel making it round, the slight aromatic recalls ensure a compelling personality.

The typical SIRCH

Fresh and crisp wines that express the best regional wine tradition and represent the modern vision of a story that is renewed in time, told with naturalness.

Cladrecis by SIRCH

Wines of rare prestige that are born from the recovery of an ancient viticultural area in the DOC zone of Friuli Colli Orientali and enclose the essence of these lands, where unique natural elements meet.

Schioppettino di Prepotto

A “harmoniously explosive” wine, indissolubly linked to its land of origin: Prepotto. Here, climate, soil and local culture have given life to a real terroir.

Terlato Wines

Wines that look far ahead without losing the sense of their origins: the foothills of the Julian Alps. Freshness in harmony with the sapid and full taste of these hilly lands.
Today, it is no longer the farmers who emigrate from Friuli to the Americas, it is the wines’ turn to travel, bringing the flavors of the Colli Orientali to the United States.
