Il Cascinone – Soliti Merlot, 2019
SKU: IAR1001 Category: Red
A luscious, concentrated and plummy Merlot from a 6 acre plot on the Il Cascinone estate that punches well above it's weight.
How it's made
The Merlot grapes are grown in a single block of just 6 acres, planted in 2000 on south-west facing slopes to encourage ripening. Cool nights on the hillside vineyards also encourages the development of fruity characters in the finished wine. The must is carefully fermented at controlled temperatures to ensure plenty of fruity extraction. The wine is bottled young without wood ageing to preserve the fruit character.
Drink with grilled red meats, roast duck, rich stews or pasta with intense tomato sauces.
An opulent nose with plum and blackberry characters. Full flavored and lightly spicy on the palate, with fleshy black fruit backed by firm, ripe tannins and dark chocolate notes on the finish.
