Danzante Merlot 2016 0,750l.
Fermentation & Aging
The grapes are lightly crushed and the must fermented in stainless steel vats at approximately 30C (86F). The wine ferments approximately 10 days and is given seven days of extended skin contact to naturally soften tannins and develop varietal complexity. Immediately following the primary fermentation, the wine undergoes malolactic fermentation to enhance the wines roundness and depth. The wine is not oak aged in order to accentuate the pure berry fruit character. After 10 months in stainless steel tanks to marry flavors, the wine is bottled.
Merlot Toscana IGT
Intense ruby red, with subtle purplish highlight. The nose initially reveals emphatic notes of wild red berry fruit, such as wild cherry and blueberry, which expand into a peppery amalgam of baker's chocolate and black liquorice. The palate is warm and silky, displaying crisp fruit with dense-packed, glossy tannins. An almost endless finish provides the wine's impressive conclusion.
