Merlot DOC - Sintesi - Ronco del Gelso 2017
|PRODUCER||Ronco del Gelso|
|REGION||Friuli Venezia Giulia|
|PAIRING||Meat - Cheese|
"Sintesi dei Capitoli" comes from hand-picked and carefully selected Merlot grapes, at the moment of their maximum ripeness. The bunches are delicately crushed and destemmed; the alcoholic fermentation is carried out in stainless steel containers at a controlled temperature with prolonged maceration on the skins lasting about 20 days. We then proceed with the racking and pressing of the skins; the wine ages for at least 24 months in oak barrels.
“Sintesi dei Capitoli” has an intense ruby red color with light purple reflections. The sense of smell is captivated by the complex fruity aromas of ripe red fruit and berries, cherry, blackberry and raspberry, to which are added floral hints of dried flowers and spicy aromas of pepper, licorice and cinnamon. In the mouth the taste is decidedly full, rich, characterized by an elegant tannic texture. The finish is long, spicy and savory.
A Merlot of immense finesse, to be savored in combination with meat-based dishes and medium-aged cheeses.
