Merlot Wine is a grape that suits itself almost all soils and that reaches being early and optimal ripening levels even in colder microclimate.
The purity of Merlot Wine gives rise to an intense red wine, characterized by red-fruity scents of wood with mild hints of herbs. At the tasting is a full-bodied wine, but in the same time velvety and harmonious
