More information about Gant Merlot Riserva Alto Adige DOC - Cantina Andrian
The Cantina Andrian Gant Merlot Riserva Alto Adige is a first-class red wine in a glass. It offers a wonderfully dense, purple-red color.

This single-varietal Italian wine shows wonderfully expressive notes of prunes, blackcurrants and raisins in the glass. There are also hints of plum.
This red from Cantina Andrian is just right for all wine lovers who like it dry. However, it is never austere or brittle, as you would expect from an iconic wine segment. This velvety red wine is full-bodied and complex on the palate. Thanks to the balanced fruit acidity, the Gant Merlot Riserva Alto Adige flatters the palate with a soft sensation without lacking freshness. On the finish, this youthful red wine from the Trentino-Alto Adige wine-growing region impresses with its considerable length. Once again, there are hints of blackcurrant and raisins. In the finish, mineral notes from the sand and clay-dominated soils are added.
