Winemaking
Pinot Nero grapes, after crushing, are let to ferment for 6 days on the skins with light pump-overs. After about 2 weeks Merlot grapes are then picked, crushed, and fermented for 8 days. It is then time for blending the 2 qualities. The resulting wine needs to rest for 6 months before being bottled.

Tasting notes
ruby red colored with dark shades, recalls of black berries on the nose. It’s round and fresh with a medium tannin and a long finish.

Serving suggestion
best as an aperitif or light meals, very good with fish.
