Merlot Ticino DOC
Superb lively ruby red wine, which encapsulates the characteristics of the terroir of Moncucchetto, from which it comes. Spicy and leathery notes, supported by cocoa bean, coffee and vanilla notes in the bouquet. Excellent structure, warm, it rediscovers on the palate the characters already perceived in the bouquet. The right amount of tannins with a dense texture and good persistence. With a few years of maturing it acquires considerable complexity. It goes well with red meats, game and mature cheeses.
