Casale del Giglio Merlot IGT

Grape Variety: Merlot


Alcohol: 13% Vol


Vinification: The grapes are carefully harvested. During the long maceration that takes a time of some 15-20 days, pumping over and delestage techniques aerate the fermenting must and favour the formation of stable colour and soft velvety tannins, while the submerged cap technique produces a finished wine with greater body and better aging potential.When the wine is racked,the fermented skins are still rich in colour, tannins and aromas. To capture these extracts the skins are driven gently to the soft presses by natural gravity alone. Malolactic fermentation takes place in stainless steel vats. The wine then matures for 8-12 months in small oak barrels before it is bottled and aged for approximately 180 days.


Colour:Deep ruby-red


Bouquet: Aromas of small redberried fruits and cherry


Taste: Characteristic herbal notes return on a smooth, well-rounded palate.
