The Merlot grape delivers full-bodied, tannin-rich, fruity wines with moderate levels of acidity and alcohol. In general, wines from Veneto have well-balanced, medium body. The dominant aromas that characterise those grape varieties are primarily red berries and dried herb notes. These very dark wines have a velvety-soft taste, which makes them easily accessible for many.
MERLOT VENETO IGT is characterised by its bright ruby-red colour. It has aromas of berries, cassis and has background notes of cherry. This creation impresses with mellow tannins, mild acidity and subtle spiciness. A combination that ensures a very well-rounded flavour profile.
Its mild acidity and mature, full-bodied berry flavours make MERLOT VENETO IGT an exquisite accompaniment to pasta and delicately seasoned meat dishes. It also harmonises excellently with more full-flavoured and richer dishes, such as lamb, game or steak. MERLOT VENETO IGT also acts as a full-bodied complement to a good cheese selection.
In part thanks to its undemanding grape variety, Merlot is a true classic among red wines. Although originally French, this variety of grape is now cultivated worldwide. In addition to Germany – where it is, coincidentally, the most popular red wine – the area to the west of the province of Verona in Italy also offers excellent conditions for delightful Merlot wines. It has been cultivated in that region for centuries.
