TN : Merlot delle Venezie 2006, IGT, Zenato, Italy


This wine is 100% Merlot. The grapes are planted on benchland and hillside areas in the province of Verona. The aspect of the vineyards is south and southeast and are at an average altitude of 150 to 200 metres. The vineyard soils are sandy and clayey. The vines are spur-trained and cordon pruned. The planting density is 4000 vines per hectare. The yield per hectare is 10 metric tons. The grapes were manually harvested between mid to late September.

Grapes are sorted using cluster quality selection, crushing-destemming, and then the fruit is given a 5- to 6-day maceration on the skins in steel fermenters. After fermentation, the wine is pressed off and the press wine set aside. Upon completion of malolactic fermentation, maturation follows in 300-litre French oak, then bottle-aged for 6 months before release.
