Unmistakably minty in the nose, this mellow and mature Merlot is full of plum, red raspberry and mild oak. It's soft, smooth and suave. Its age and riserva status are best appreciated in the mouthfeel; it doesn't overwhelm at all. Quality-driven estates in northeast Italy have shown a propensity to do well with Merlot in good vintages, and this one offers attractive subtleties.
