Merlot 2005, 500ml
Wine Maker Radikon
Region Friuli, Italy
Terroir: "Ponca" = layers and blends of minerals from the prehistoric sea bed, clay and sandstone.
Vinification: Grapes are hand-harvested. The maceration of the skin with the juice lasts for 30/60 days in oak vats. The wine is then matured for 5 years in old oak barrels. The bottles are then aged before being released. Ageing in bottle will depend on the vintage but it's usually around 5 years. No added sulphur.
For tasting our wines at their best, we suggest drinking the wines at 15° C/ 59 F, and do not place them in the refrigerator for a longer period.
