Merlot Friuli Grave DOC Scarbolo
Scarbolo's Merlot is made from 100% Friulian Merlot grapes, grown exclusively in the "Ferrovia" vineyard owned by the family. It is a red wine with great personality and able to express at best Friuli Venezia Giulia's people character, tenacity. After a manual harvest, the destemmed grapes ferment in stainless steel tanks and during this phase the winemakers carry out several pumpings over of the cap per day, in order to obtain a maximum extraction of colour and sweet tannins. Half of th wine is aged in oak barrels and half in stainless steel tanks for about 1 year. Bottle aged for an additional 6 months before release.
The wine has an intense ruby red colour. Full and fragrant bouquet, characterized by notes of violet, black and red currant and raspberry jam. Harmonious and thick flavour, great drinkability. You will taste cassis and light bitter almond notes in the mouth. We suggest serving it at a temperature of 16-18 °C.
