Tasting Notes

This Merlot has a fragrance of red plums and dark cherries. With an earthy complexity to the wine, you can expect a great freshness, easy tannins and a soft finish to the palate. Matured in older French oak barrels. This succulent Merlot is perfect with Parma ham, roast lamb kebabs and a hearty oxtail meal. It is an ideal accompaniment to robust Italian dishes.
