    • "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

    • "Falconera" Merlot Montello Colli Asolani DOC 2016

      “Falconera” Merlot Montello Colli Asolani DOC 2016

      Merlot grapes from mineral-rich terroir and the style of Conte Loredan Gasparini produce this wine with 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 and yet full of melting, long final. SUPERIORE.DE

      "Elegant, rich garnet with a delicately brightening rim. In the nose slight reduction, after enough air then delicate vegetal notes, red pepper, citron syrup, fresh raspberries, light leather, tobacco. On the palate with equally light vegetal green spiciness, which, however, prepares high drinking flow, medium-bodied, juicy, gentle after-drying in the back." Falstaff

      Rosato di Toscana IGT 2020 (BIO)

      The grapes of this 100% Merlot come from a single vineyard of Brancaias Maremma-Dependance, certified organic since 2020. Three months of ageing on the fine lees results in a polished, mineral rosato in a class of its own. Bright salmon pink, fragrance of floral notes and watermelon, ends precisely and long with a fresh, well-dosed acidity and fine melting. SUPERIORE.DE

      "Delicately shimmering copper with a touch of gold. Fine meadow herbs envelop the nose, then ripe cranberries, some sea buckthorn and delicate fumé. Spans finely over the tongue, harmonious, clear, delicate minerality, stoffig with delicate melting in the drink, reverberates on fine fruit play, beautiful interpretation." Falstaff

    • "del Pompiere" Merlot Venezia-Giulia IGT 2020

      “del Pompiere” Merlot Venezia-Giulia IGT 2020

      Mario Schiopetto was born in 1930, he grew up in the family-owned Osteria ai Pompieri and had his first professional experiences as a fireman and later as a truck driver. In 1963, guided only by his taste and love of wine, he began to devote himself to wine production in his parents' farm and produced the first pure Tocai in 1965. The historic label at the time included the drawing of his fire engine, which he also used to deliver the wine to customers. With the current 2019 vintage, the winery is reflecting on these historical roots and is reintroducing the cute drawing on some of its wine labels.

      Garnet-purple coloured Merlot with a warm scent of crisp plums and ripe blackberries, plus earthy nuances and a hint of clove. Slender but full-bodied on the palate, all components wonderfully harmonised. SUPERIORE.DE

    • "XV" Merlot Vigneti delle Dolomiti DOC 2018 (BIO)

      “XV” Merlot Vigneti delle Dolomiti DOC 2018 (BIO)

      South of Margreid lies the "15er" site, which is characterised by deposits of the Fenner stream and the Etsch river and has been largely planted with Merlot vines since 1957. Its site enjoys particularly good aeration due to the warm wind from Lake Garda, the Ora, which gives the wine a filigree structure and great finesse. Cherry red with ruby shimmer. Impressive bouquet of concentrated fruits, pepper and vegetal notes. Pleasantly medium-bodied, precise and balanced, with a fine hint of bittersweet and a convincing freshness. SUPERIORE.DE

    • "In Violas" Merlot Cortona DOC 2016

      “In Violas” Merlot Cortona DOC 2016

      The DOC Cortona, which has existed since 1999, is famous for its single-varietal Syrahs and Merlots, whose vines thrive excellently on the Pliocene clayey soils. Since 2006, the Carletti family has also been involved in this appellation, which was quite unknown until today, and their Merlot Il Violas is now known beyond the borders of Italy and has many lovers.

      Dense, dark ruby with violet reflections. On the nose, an open-hearted bouquet of black berry fruits, sandalwood, rosemary and with fine spice. The texture coats the palate, warm, intense and rich of dark fruits, chocolate, plum and redcurrant. In Violas is a generous and deep red that just calls out for a Bistecca Fiorentina and gives much pleasure. SUPERIORE.DE

      "The 2016 In Violas is a bold, savory wine. Dried cherry, leather scorched earth, licorice and lavender add savory overtones to this firm, brooding Merlot." Vinous

      "Black olives and berries on the nose and palate. Full body. Round and juicy with a flavorful finish. Shows focus and beauty." James Suckling

      "The Poliziano 2016 Cortona Merlot in Violas pours from the bottle with a dark and thickly concentrated appearance. The wine opens to rich fruit, plum, blackberry, rosemary essence and a touch of dried mint. The tannins show some fine texture or graininess on the close, but the richness of the mouthfeel washes smoothly over any rough edges. This wine has the depth and width to pair with a succulent steak in cream and pepper sauce." Robert Parker

Pure and clear in the mouth, soft but powerful tannins, long. SUPERIORE.DE

      "Rich shining ruby red. In the nose rich berry fruit, of wild berries, rose hips, cranberries, underlaid with a hint of noble spice. On the palate with a sweet fruit core and tight tannin, elegantly spans the tongue, harmonious final." Falstaff

      "A medium-to full-bodied red with aromas of dried flowers, peaches, plums, bark and chocolate orange. Firm, fine-grained tannins and fresh acidity. Structured and flavorful." James Suckling

      "The Cotarella family was especially attracted to the idea of making Merlot in Lazio thanks to the volcanic soils commonly found in this region. Since 2015, when they made their first vintage, the family has worked to hone in on the special qualities of these soils. The Falesco Famiglia Cotarella 2018 Merlot Sodale is indeed electric and energized with bright berry fruit and lifted aromas of dark mineral and grilled herb. This Merlot shows more saltiness than it does overt sweetness. To the palate, it is earthy, compact and deep. You get terrific value here." Robert Parker

    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
