Details

One to cellar for a few years if you can, but already a very impressive Merlot.

Serving Suggestions:

18ºC
Recommended with red meat, game dishes and with hard cheeses. A “vino di meditazione” whose complexity merits full attention. It may also stand alone.

In Depth:

Harvested at the peak of maturity, the grapes were first left to dry on pallets in temperature controlled ventilated rooms. The classic vinification began with crushing in mid-October followed by fermentation in temperature controlled stainless steel tanks. The wine is matured for 20 months in barriques of new French oak. Frequent racking from the lees allowed for bottling without fining, filtration or other physical stabilization. This may result in slight sediment in the bottle.

tasting notes:

Colour: Intense, deep ruby red.

Bouquet: Intense and lasting impressions of ripe blackberry fruits are followed by elegant roasted notes that remind of liquorice, dark chocolate and coffee. Very complex!

Palate: A powerful wine that nonetheless impresses with great elegance and ripe soft tannins of perfect quality and strength. An excellently structured Platinum that leaves a lasting impression. It will reward patient cellaring and is also fully enjoyable now.
