DOC Colli Euganei Merlot

MERLOT DOC
In the recent Euganean history this is the grape that has gradually replaced, since the last world war, almost all the old native Paduan vines, due to its productivity and pleasantness of taste.
It occupies several plots in Faedo and Arquà Petrarca, mainly on calcareous clay. Ages at least two years in large oak barrels from Slavonia, thus enhancing the typical fruity, full and round taste.
