Merlot Riserva South Tyrol Alto Adige
A.A. Merlot Riserva "Freiherr"
Situated at the foot of Montefranco, where they are well protected, the ancient vines here produce extremely high quality, small-berried, phenol-rich grapes that are of outstanding quality. This high cordon is the subject of intense manual labour to select the bunches of grapes individually. Only a few, and those with the smallest berries, remain on the vine. The hand-selected grapes of this single estate are then aged in new and used barrique barrels into true greats. A zesty, powerful and durable Merlot Riserva, that is entirely capable of holding its own with the biggest names in its class.Buy Now

The alcoholic fermentation occurs in a special tank for about 10-15 days, followed by a malolactic conversion and ageing in barriques and large oak casks for 16 months.
The colour is deep and impressive. Complex, fruity notes of sour cherries and blackberries with scents of liquorice and chocolate. Elegant, strong and harmonious on the palate, persistent.
