Intense ruby red colour.

Attractive aromas of ripe red berry fruit follow through on to the palate.

This wine is velvety, round and full-bodied.

The Merlot is riper and juicier than other Merlots from the Veneto, and offers great value.

Producer Information

We’ve been watching this producer for a few years and weren’t surprised, with the arrival of Alberto Marchisio as director and winemaker with the 2012 vintage, that the quality of the wines has improved dramatically.

The grapes are grown primarily on the hills south of Vicenza, the Colli Berici, which ensures lower yields and better ripeness. With Alberto’s hand in the winery, the delicate aromas of the whites, both of which are unoaked, have been preserved. The Sauvignon is surprisingly fragrant and varietal (ripe rather than herbaceous) while the Pinot Grigio has an attractive biscuity character.

The Pinot Nero shows just what can be achieved with the cool nights (thanks to altitude) here. The wine has good colour and an appealing cherryish perfume, decent depth on the palate and good length. It puts many a Bourgogne Pinot Noir to shame. The Merlot is riper and juicier than other Merlots from the Veneto, and offers great value.

These wines, the cream of the production from the Colli Vicentini co-operative, are, we’re convinced, just what our customers are looking for at the moment.
