Merlot

A dry wine with a good structure produced from 100% Merlot grapes, it is characterised by a ruby red colour, intense aromas of red fruits and a pleasant spiciness. Typically sweet like all Merlot wines, with balanced tannins and a fairly long finish. A great pairing for cold cuts and pasta dishes with meat sauce.
