CASA DEL MERLOORDER
Euganean Hills Controlled Designation of Origin
This wine is the result of our commitment to give Merlot, once the most cultivated red-grape wine variety, the position it deserves, thanks to its versatility and adaptability to the terroir. Unfortunately, its main features have been properly seized just in a few occasions. Il Filò became home to Merlot at the beginning of the XXI century. It has been considered just a blended variety until the plant has lost some of his young impetuousness. The 2012 harvest we offer is the result of a pretty warm year, but thanks to the perfect vegetal-productive balance, the grapes were harvested at perfect conditions.

- Maturation and FiningAfter 12 months, it is transferred in steel tanks where it is left for another year before being bottled. No clarifying nor filtering are realised. It is additionally fined, once bottled, for 12 months.
- ColourIt has a deep, impenetrable and grim red.
- FragranceComplex aroma of matured red fruit, rich in spices and balsamic nuances. It is neither impetuous nor alcoholic.
- TasteIt releases with great elegance and after quite a waiting. It does not blossom immediately; it gradually offers new and complex feelings. It is surprising for its balance and as it can be drunk as a simple, but not ordinary, wine variety.
