Terre di Chieti Merlot IGT
Hand-harvested grapes are vinified in stainless steel tanks with a long maceration at a controlled temperature. The must is frequently pumped over to intensify the aromatics and the color. The wine is then finished in stainless steel tanks.
Fragrant aromas and soft, round fruit flavors that develop into a smooth finish.
Medium bodied and fragrant, this wine pairs beautifully with roasted herbed chicken, lightly sauced red meats, and pasta.
