Merlot IGT Marca Trevigiana

Technical Sheet

GRAPE VARIETY OR BLEND
100% Merlot.

TERROIR AND CLIMATE
The grapes for our Merlot I.G.T. are harvested from family-owned vineyards located at the foot of the hills known as “Colli Asolani” (north-west from Treviso). With the hills sheltering them from northern winds, the vineyards benefit from the mild, temperate climate of the area and enjoy good sun exposure. The soil composition in the area is a balanced combination of silt, clay and sand.

WINEMAKING
After a primary submerged cap fermentation, that lasts for some days and takes place in smallsized wine tanks, the wine undergoes maturation in stainless steel tanks at controlled temperature for some months. The wine is then fined, bottled and allowed to rest for 20 days before being released for sale.

STORAGE
Slightly ageable, up to two years. Store vertically in a dry and fresh place, away from sunlight.
