More about this wine

Matured in new oak, this Ticino Merlot is everything you can ask for in a Merlot from Ticino. True to the region and the grape, it is fruity and full-bodied and shows why Ticino is the perfect place to grow Merlot. In fact, almost 90% of vines in Ticino are Merlot. If you need to question why, just try this wine.

Ben says (August 2016): Vast amounts of cherries fill your nose as you breathe in this lovely aroma with plum, dark chocolate, humus and even some green apple in the background. In the mouth this is a beautifully soft wine, caressing the taste buds with perfect acidity and gentle tannins. The stone fruits dominate but herbal notes join in strongly. The finish is very enjoyable as different flavours pop up. Another great Merlot from Ticino.
