Merlot DOC FCO

Three different vineyards with special exposures produce a varied composition and good compensation in the succession of the vintages of this wine. Very fruity, aged for 12 months in wooden barrels.


V.Q.P.R.D. D.O.C. Eastern Hills of Friuli


100% Merlot


Marlyn hilly soil: vineyards situated partly at the feet of the hills and partly mid-hill, facing South, West and Northeast. Vines trained with double arched cane and the Guyot system, with 4000-5000 vines per hectare.


By hand, towards mid October; 60-65 quintals per hectare.


The wine ferments in steel for about 12 days in contact with the skins; it is then separated from the skins and left to refine for around 10 months in French oak barriques and tonneaux of varying ages, and then assembled in steel.
