Red wines


Arrived in the region centuries ago, Merlot adapted perfectly becoming a traditional variety in Friuli. The wine is elegant and floral with balsamic and spicy notes.

Mainly trained in the Guyot system, the vines of our Merlot benefit from marl and sandstone soils of Eocene origin. The 2019 harvest took place in the second half of September. The healthy and perfectly ripe grapes are harvested by hand, in small crates, to preserve the integrity of the berry. Carefully destemmed, the fruit is then crushed. Fermentation is carried out with maceration on the skins at controlled temperatures in stainless steel containers. The wine matures in stainless steel and small barrels of French oak. The bottled wine is then aged in temperature-controlled binning cellars.

Merlot D.O.C. Friuli Colli Orientali 2019 – 14 % abv.


Tasting notes


Intense, crystal clear ruby red.


Perky and stylish with succulent ripe black cherries and red cherry plums, mingling with pervasive hints of dark spice and rose petals, and a subtle tropical, citrus note.


Luscious, refreshing and mouthfilling. Marasca cherries, pomegranate and blood oranges shine in the polished back palate, alongside captivating hints of cloves, Sichuan pepper and cedar wood. Characterful tannin in a chewy, sumptuous, lingering finish with subtle echoes of toasted cocoa beans.

Food pairings:

Red meats, roasts and moderately mature cheeses.
