Item no. 53872
Outstanding Merlot from Italy, and a consistent best buy! Deep ruby red in color, very spicy and rich in aroma. Blackberry, tobacco and vanilla come through on the palate. The finish is long and pleasant. Recommended with lamb and spicier dishes and sauces.
"The 2001 Merlot dell'Umbria is a spectacular buy. Aged five months in oak, and bottled with neither fining nor filtration, this dense ruby/purple-colored offering exhibits a big, sweet nose of cigar smoke, mocha, black cherry liqueur, and vanilla. Supple, ripe, and heady, it is a luscious, medium to full-bodied, hedonistic Merlot fruit bomb to drink during its first 4-5 years of life."
