Merlot

Merlot is a black-berry vine, whose name derives from the particular predilection that has its blackbird for its berries, it comes from the Gironde, in the South-West of France, and in particular from the Bordeaux area from which they are born (in a blend with Cabernet) some of the most prestigious wines in the world (Château Lafitte-Rothschild, Château Latour, Château Margaux). Château Petrus and Masseto are two examples of prestigious wines made exclusively from Merlot grapes. Merlot and chardonnay are among the so-called "international" French varieties, the most cultivated in every part of the world, thanks to their high adaptability.

Toscana Rosso 'Excelsus' by Castello Banfi is produced only in great vintages. It is a Supertuscan that perfectly integrates the best tradition of Merlot and Cabernet Sauvignon with the territory of Montalcino and with the tradition of Castello Banfi. Austere wine, of rare concentration and structure, whose maturation requires a passage in barrique of at least 20 months. The result is an intense wine that has very fruity scents accompanied by more complex notes of jam, spices, tobacco and coffee. In the mouth, it shows all its grandeur, with sweet tannins and very persistent hints.

Cuvée 'Lis Neris' by Lis Neris is the company's flagship red wine. Cuvée are the highest quality, they are born from an extreme selection and are the result of the assembly of different varieties. The result is a unique wine, capable of expressing the balance between the vines and the place of production. It stands out for its Bordeaux profile (Merlot 90-95% and Cabernet Sauvignon 5-10%) and for its Friulian thoroughbred character. A warm and rich wine, with refined tannins and a very long finish. The first vintage of production was 1989, when the Cabernet share was a priority, but over the years Merlot has prevailed with its warmth and softness.
