More information

Lance Merlot by Cantine Paolini from the Italian wine region DOC Sicilia is a varietal, balanced and soft red wine. 

This wine appears with an intense ruby red with purple highlights: the expressive bouquet comes with a real firework of fruits. Delightful aromas of juicy cherries are revealed, supported by the berry nuances of mulberries, cranberries and raspberries. This typical Sicilian red wine convinces on the palate with its soft tannins and balanced acidity. The velvety texture is carried by aromas of black cherries in a long and aromatic aftertaste.

Vinification of Catine Paolini Lance Merlot 

The vines for this Merlot are rooted on clayey soils in Sicily.

After harvesting by hand, the grapes are gently pressed and then the alcoholic fermentation with maceration on the skin takes place for about 12 days. After malolactic fermentation, this Italian wine is aged for 6 months in large oak barrels and then in cement tanks. After bottling, this wine matures for another 6 to 8 months in bottle.
