Monviert Martagona Merlot
Type: Red Wine
Grape(s): 100% Merlot
Wine Region: Friuli Venezia Giulia, Italy
Tasting Notes: A deep ruby red colour. Pleasantly scented, reminiscent of black cherry, blackberry and raspberry. The taste is smooth, dry and harmonious.
The delicately de-stemmed grapes are macerated for 4-6 days to allow optimum extraction of the colour, tannins and aromatics from the grape skins. After fermentation, the wine is aged for 3-4 months in stainless steel tanks.
Monviert is a family owned and run winery in Colli Orientali del Friuli DOC (NE Italy). The vines are managed using the 'integrated struggle' method, which respects the balance of the plants and minimizes the use of chemicals.
Suggested food and wine pairing: It goes very well with white and red meats, roasts, poultry and semi-mature cheeses.
