The MERLOT grapes are carefully selected throughout the ripening season and they naturally dry 30 days directly on the plant.
We make use of a special drying method: vine-shoots are cut off so that the grapes no longer receive nutrition from the plant and naturally dry thanks to the breeze coming both from the sea-side and from the Gran Sasso chain.
After fermentation, the Merlot “Admire” relaxes 12 - 14 months in french oak tonneaux (500 lt.). It then refines in bottles for 6 months before being released on the market.
Deep ruby red colour, delicate hints of pomegranade in the nose, full-bodied in the mouth.

 

Area of production: Roseto Degli Abruzzi / Abruzzo Region 

Variety: 100% Merlot

Vineyard: our Fosso Corno Estate is located in Roseto Degli Abruzzi and covers 30 hectares on a single hill, facing the Adriatic Sea. The vineyard from which we produce “Admire” stands at an average alti- tude of 140 mt. a.s.l. with optimal south-west exposure.

Harvest: grapes are carefully selected throughout the ripening season and naturally dry 30 days directly on the plant. We make use of a special drying method: vine-shoots are cut off so that the grapes no longer receive nutrition from the plant and nat- urally dry thanks to the breeze coming both from the sea-side and from the Gran Sasso chain.

Vinification: once these grapes have been hand-harvested and softly pressed, a slow, 25-days maceration begins. After fermentation, the Merlot “Admire” relaxes 12/14 months in French oak tonneaux (500 lt.). It then refines in bottles for 6 months before being released on the market.

Winemaker’s notes: deep ruby red colour. Delicate hints of pome- granade on the nose, full-bodied in the mouth. It comes across as well-balanced, full and vigorous, with a long finish.

Pairings: pasta with meat sauces, roasted red meat, game, aged and sharp cheese.

Ideal serving temperature: 16°-18°C.
