      Merlot grapes from mineral-rich terroir and the style of Conte Loredan Gasparini produce this wine with unbeatable price-quality ratio.

In the nose slight reduction, after enough air then delicate vegetal notes, red pepper, citron syrup, fresh raspberries, light leather, tobacco.

    • "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

The vineyards of the comrades are located in Siebeneich and Bozen at 300 meters above sea level and offer ideal conditions for the flourishing of this beautiful Merlot.

      Dark ruby to garnet red. Smells exuberant of blackberry and wild berries, complemented by a refined spice component. In the drink it is elegant, finely fruity, almost polished.

      To the south of Margreid lies the "15er" vineyard, which is characterised by deposits of the Fenner stream and the Adige river and has been largely planted with Merlot vines since 1957. Its location enjoys a particularly good aeration due to the warm wind from Lake Garda, the Ora, which gives the wine a filigree structure and finesse. Cherry red with a ruby shimmer.

    • "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

    • "Sodale" Merlot Lazio IGP 2018

      “Sodale” Merlot Lazio IGP 2018

      A delight for lovers of supple red wines and the second wine of Cotarella's Tenuta Montiano. Deep ruby red, slightly sweet notes of ripe blackberries and black cherries on the nose, some coffee, spices, vanilla and subtle toasted aromas. Pure and clear in the mouth, soft but powerful tannins, long. SUPERIORE.DE

      "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

    • "Marina Cvetic" Merlot Terre Aquilane IGT 2015

      “Marina Cvetic” Merlot Terre Aquilane IGT 2015

      Dark ruby garnet, delicately spicy bouquet, juicy cherry notes and delicate caramel. Of elegant texture, with firm tannins and well structured. A round wine and ideal accompaniment to food. SUPERIORE.DE

      "This is a stand-up Merlot that delivers no more and no less that you should expect of the grape. The Marina Cvetić 2015 Merlot (from the IGT Terre Aquilane appellation) is a soft and layered expression with lots of ripe fruit and sweet back-end notes of cherry and blackberry. The wine's texture is loosely knit and bold, with a broad and wide approach. You get the softness of the sunny 2015 vintage contrasted against the fortitude and stubbornness of the Abruzzo wine character." Robert Parker

    • "Villa Gresti di San Leonardo" Rosso Dolomiti IGT 2015

      “Villa Gresti di San Leonardo” Rosso Dolomiti IGT 2015

      Villa Gresti is an exciting cuvée of Merlot and Carmenère that is a very nice balance of fruit intensity, spice, ripe cherry and sweet tobacco. Medium-bodied on the palate, with a softness and a very attractive, drinkable style and a rich, fruit-driven finish. SUPERIORE.DE

      "Shiny, rich ruby with a slightly brightening rim. Opens on the nose with notes of dark cherry and lots of blackberry, paired with intense spice. On the palate hearty, supple tannin at the core, fine spice, independent." Falstaff

      "A very subtle, enticing red that shows dried blackcurrants, dried cedar, walnuts and tobacco. Finely spiced and structured with firm tannins and driven acidity." James Suckling

      "The 2015 Villa Gresti di San Leonardo is a blend of Merlot with a dollop of Carmenère from an old vineyard located around Villa Gresti. It opens up with breathtaking aromatics, showing dusty black cherry and wild blueberry with a peppery, herbal infusion, as notes of moist dark soil and roses form. There's a stimulating mixture of acids and salty minerals that offsets its silky textures in a red-fruited display that is more savory than sweet. Tannins build but never get in the way, finishing lifted and refined, with notes of blueberry skins and herbs. Wow. " Vinous

      Beautiful interpretation of the grape variety: Herbaceous and minty notes on the nose, plus lavender and sage. Then very tasty and complex on the palate of dark fruits, dried cherries, complemented by tones of undergrowth and tobacco.

The wine displays candied fruit aromas with cherry, blackcurrant, plum, spice and bitter chocolate. In terms of appearance, it displays a bright ruby color with bluish hues. There is plenty of fresh, sweet berry fruit on the close that gives this wine great appeal straight out of the gate." 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
