Merlot Friuli Colli Orientali DOC
Arzenton's Cabernet Sauvignon is obtained from 100% Cabernet Sauvignon grapes, harvested and selected by hand in the vineyard during the harvest. The must ferments in concrete tanks with delastage every 2 days, in order to completely separate the must from the grapes and alcoholic fermentation follows the malolactic one. The wine is then poured into other concrete tanks, to refine for at least 2 years, followed by a further ageing in the bottle for at least 6 months.
Intense ruby red colour, tending to garnet with aging. Aromas of red fruits, reminiscent of sour cherry, raspberry and blueberry. The aging in bottle gives the wine spicy notes. On the palate it is dry, well structured and slightly sapid. We suggest serving it at a temperature of 18 °C.
FOOD MATCHING SUGGESTIONS
Arzenton's Merlot is an excellent red wine to pair with grilled meat, roast beef and cheese.
