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 were destemmed and crushed, and vinification was carried out in temperature-controlled stainless steel tanks, followed by 12 to 15 months in large oak casks.

Harvest Note
2018 was a wonderful growing season, though not without its challenges. Budding was uniform and started 15 days later than last year; however thanks to the temperatures of April and May, the delay was recovered. The abundance of rain between May and June caused only limited damage and the rain in the last days of August brought a beneficial correction to the sugar / acidity ratio. This year’s production is abundant and overall, the 2018 grapes are healthy.
Tasting Note
The lively, deep color preludes an especially fragrant bouquet of black cherries, spices, berries and tobacco; on the plate, medium body, crisp freshness yet silky texture sustained by well-integrated tannins, lush fruit, subtle earthy and herbal notes, excellent balance and a long finish.
Food Pairing
Pairs wonderfully with red meat and hearty first courses. Very easy to drink and food friendly.
