Langhe Merlot D.O.C.
Merlot grapes 100%.
A persuasive wine. A basket full of fragrant dark ripe fruit: black cherry, cherry and blackberry, with a hint of carob and peony.
Wide mouth, generous, fully enjoyable. The roundness of the fruit grants an accommodating, relaxing and long sip.
You can have fun in the world of meat. Stewed or grilled, roast wild boar or pie crust.
Service temperature : 18 °C
