    Winemaker's Notes:

    Made from 100% Merlot grown in various estate vineyards in Umbria and harvested in early September. The wine is fermented in temperature controlled stainless steel tanks and aged in Nevers barrels for 5 months.

    Unfiltered to preserve its rich aromas of red fruit and spice, this Merlot is deep ruby red in color. The aromas of blackberry, tobacco and vanilla linger on the long and pleasant finish. Recommended with spicy dishes and sauces. A favorite with lamb.

    Critical Acclaim:

    The 2007 Merlot, on the other hand, is just plain delicious. The wine possesses notable depth and inner sweetness, with waves of dark fruit, chocolate, spices and French oak that flow from its full-bodied, richly-textured frame. This bottling reveals terrific complexity and harmony, particularly in this price range. Riccardo Cotarella is known for his work with Merlot, and the wine is proof of his mastery with the grape.
