Merlot Trentino DOC
/ Trentino- Alto Adige
Bollini Merlot comes from Trentino, where the clay soils in the cool, dry highland vineyards are ideally suited to producing clean, elegant and aromatic wines of great charm. Hand harvested grapes are destemmed and crushed, and vinification is carried out in temperature-controlled stainless steel tanks, followed by maturation in large oak casks.

Bollini Merlot has fleshy, fragrant flavors of wild berries integrated with subtle spice and a mellow, medium body. Subtle, earthy, herbal notes supported by integrated tannins carry into the finish.
This versatile wine is a perfect match with most pasta dishes, but also has the depth to complement grilled and roasted meats.
