Tasting Notes

We recently started importing the wines from Tenuta Roveglia a producer at the foot of Lake Garda just west of Verona. We love their whites, and now this Merlot, as well!

    I have always loved Merlot from Italy as they are almost never as big and blowsy as Domestic Merlot can often be or as structured and huge as Right Bank Bordeaux. This has ample weight and texture but the lines are cleaner and the finish is crisper and more palate cleansing than most Merlot at almost any price. The dark fruit flavors turn a touch savory and along with the hint of mineral on the finish make this a great no-brainer to pair with the lighter fare and outdoor dining I prefer, This is a perfect Picnic red.

    The nose of this wine is savory, a mix of salted plums, dried cherries, hints of leather and dried herbs. On the palate the wine shows a richness that fills your mouth while still being focused, it isn’t fat, it’s just richly textured. The flavors develop showing more plum, cassis followed by a complex blend of savory herbs and bits of spice. While being a seemingly lowland wine it’s harvested in the first week of October allowing the grape to become physiologically ripe not just harvested on the sugar bloom. The finish shows more mineral and earth to go along with the rich but savory fruit and the stainless steel fermentation allows the earth and the fruit to come together without any oak getting in the way.
    Drink from 2018 to 2020
