Collavini Merlot dal Pic DOC2017

Collavini Merlot dal Pic DOC2017

Bottle 750 ML

Our Merlot takes its name from the Friulian term “Dal Pic”, which corresponds to the tip of the hill, the best exposed area of the hill. Here the grapes reach full maturity and, during the harvest, are collected in passitura trays and placed in the loft. At controlled temperature and humidity, each bunch concentrates its aromas and organoleptic qualities. After pressing, a 20-day maceration on the skins follows and from the spring following the harvest, the wine ages in Allier and Tronçais barriques for at least 24 months. The work is completed by a two-year refinement in the bottle.Deep ruby red color with still purplish veins. A complex, concentrated and intense wine that clearly describes notes of undergrowth fruits, spices and licorice on the nose. In the mouth the fruity texture is re-proposed that blends with the warmth and softness typical of Merlot, closing the sip with integrated tannins that intensify the gustatory persistence. Saggestions Try it with red meats and large game, also excellent with goat cheeses and aged cow’s milk cheeses.
