Tenuta Santa Maria Decima Aurea Red Wine – Veneto, Italy
This single-vineyard Merlot obtains its unique character through the selection of three clones, low-yield and high-density cultivation at 9,100 vines per hectare. Part of the grapes are left to dry for about a month, while the others are picked in October in a stage of over-ripening. The grapes are low-temperature macerated and fermented in stainless steel tanks and then aged for 14 months in French oak barriques.
Intense, ruby red in color. Complex aroma with hints of wild berries and dried plums, accompanied by notes of coffee, cocoa powder, eucalyptus and vanilla. Well-structured, soft tannins, well-balanced acidity and consistency. Intense, with a fine liquorice aftertaste.
