Toscana IGT Merlot 100%.

An uncompromising wine, definitely Merlot but with all the flavours and charm of Tuscany.

Rich deep ruby red colour leads to perfumes of ripe berries and cherries. Produced from high density vineyards with 5,000 vines per ha.

Strict pruning limits the yield to just 2,500 litres of wine per ha. which is very low indeed. Initial flavours are of intense but smooth stained tannins, a good firm acidity confirms the considerable maturation potential of this wine.

FSM can definitely be enjoyed when released, usually when it is at least 3 years old, further cellarage however will definitely enhance all the wine's characteristics.
