      Merlot grapes from mineral-rich terroirs and the style of Conte Loredan Gasparini produce this wine with an unbeatable price/quality ratio. Fine bouquet of cassis, minerals and a tiny hint of vanilla, on the palate harmonious and well-balanced, the tannins pithy but still full of melt, long final. SUPERIORE.DE

      "Elegant, rich garnet with delicately brightened edges. Slightly reduced on the nose, after aeration delicate vegetal notes, red peppers, citrus syrup, fresh raspberries, light leather, tobacco. On the palate with an equally light vegetal green spice, which, however, makes for a high drinking flow, medium-strong, juicy, in the rear area gentle post-drying." Falstaff

    • "TM" Rosé Toscana IGT 2019

      “TM” Rosé Toscana IGT 2019

      Delicate pale old pink, in the nose apricot, yellow fruit and pink grapefruit. Delicate and fresh with a soft structure, which makes this impressively elegant Rosato from predominantly Merlot the perfect companion for mild Mediterranean dishes and seafood. SUPERIORE.DE

      "The 2019 T.M. Rosé is fresh yet also quite earthy, leaning toward savory herbs and crushed stone minerality, as notes of young strawberry and pretty florals come forward. On the palate, soft textures give way to a mix of ripe red berries and melon tones, carried by brisk acids. It finishes a bit short, yet with a mouthwatering, almost-salty quality, which just begs you to take another sip. There may not be unseen depths here, but the 2019 Tenuta Monteti is ready to give a lot of pleasure." Falstaff

      "Quite zesty with a bit more structure than a typical Provence rose. Good food wine with something to get your teeth into. A satisfying rosé for the table." Jancis Robinson

    • Rosato di Toscana IGT 2019

      Rosato di Toscana IGT 2019

      The grapes of this 100% Merlot come from a single vineyard of Brancaia's Maremma branch. Bright salmon pink, scents of floral notes and watermelon, ends fresh with a mineral vein. SUPERIORE.DE

      "Rosé wines are still a small but fine niche in Tuscany: from the coast to the hills of Chianti, you can find wines in every vintage that are among the best that Italy has to offer. Like this Rosato made from Merlot grapes from the renowned Brancaia winery (with estates in Castellina in Chianti, Radda in Chianti and Grosseto). After three months on the lees, it produces a mineral rosé with a bouquet of rose blossoms and berries, a pithy acidity on the palate, a lot of grinding and a long final." Vinum

      "Pastel shades, already in the color very chic! Delicately fruity in the fragrance, raspberry, sweet cherry. Wonderfully precise in the fruit and arrow-straight in the palate structure, finely nerved, fresh, light in the alcohol and yet in the extract and length far above average. First-class harvest, sensitive winemaking. A great pleasure." Falstaff

      "A bright, fresh rosé with sliced white peaches and apples. Some lemons. Vivid. Medium to full body. Crisp finish." James Suckling

    Things to know aboutMerlot 

    The Merlot is a high quality red wine which is spread all over the world. It comes from the Bordeaux area and is the worthy partner of Cabernet Sauvignon.

    Merlot is not an uncomplicated cultivar in the vineyard: it sprouts earlier than Cabernet Sauvignon and therefore suffers more from frost. It also has a strong tendency to trickle during the flowering period under cool and wet weather conditions. Merlot, on the other hand, makes it easy for the winegrower to choose the right grape variety for each vineyard. All soils that do not seem suitable for Cabernet Sauvignon cultivation are generally ideal for Merlot. This is because it prefers heavier, deeper and more water-storing substrates than Cabernet Sauvignon.

    Pure Merlot wines are fruity, full-bodied and soft, sometimes smooth, sometimes even fatty. They are deep red and captivate with their intense fruit aromas, which evoke memories of spices and cherries. The taste and smell are also reminiscent of currants, tobacco, blackberries and often of "burnt rubber". Their less pronounced tannin structure makes the charming plants accessible much earlier than the wines from Cabernet Sauvignon. Nevertheless, the best Merlot wines are almost as long-lasting as Cabernet Sauvignon. When blended with this, the Merlot can - depending on its proportion - either soften the strict nature of Cabernet Sauvignon or be given a certain degree of structure and firmness by its tannin-rich partner.

    Today, a total of around 100,000 hectares are already planted with Merlot worldwide, and the trend is rising. This corresponds approximately to the total area under cultivation in Germany. Merlot is also widespread in northern Italy with an area of 30,000 hectares.

    The plants are mostly fruity, light and uncomplicated. They are excellent companions for light Italian cuisine. But wherever the Bordeaux wines of the Libournais and in particular the incomparable Château Pétrus are regarded as the pinnacle of wine-making, Merlot is given greater care. An outstanding example is the Masseto of the Ornellaia winery in the Tuscan DOC Bolgheri Superiore. SUPERIORE.DE
