More information about Sodale Merlot Lazio IGP - Tenuta Montiano
The powerful Sodale Merlot Lazio from Tenuta Montiano glows a dense purple red in the glass. Swirling the wine glass, this red wine reveals a high viscosity, which can be seen in the strong stained glass windows at the edge of the glass. Poured into a red wine glass, this red wine from the Old World presents wonderfully expressive aromas of plum, redcurrant and raspberry, rounded off by further fruity nuances contributed by the barrel ageing.
The Tenuta Montiano Sodale Merlot Lazio impresses with its elegantly dry taste. It was bottled with exceptionally low residual sugar. As you would expect from a premium and single-vineyard wine, this Italian naturally delights with the finest balance despite its dryness. Aroma does not necessarily require a lot of sugar. This velvety red wine is full-bodied and complex on the palate. Thanks to the moderate fruit acidity, the Sodale Merlot Lazio flatters the palate with a soft sensation without lacking freshness. On the finish, this youthful wine from the Lazio wine-growing region impresses with its considerable length. There are again hints of redcurrant and raspberry. In the finish, mineral notes from the limestone and clay-dominated soils are added.
