Friuli Colli Orientali DOC
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.
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.
