"Spirto" Toscana Merlot IGT 2008
The Merlot grapes for the Spirto grow in the higher areas of the vineyards close to the sea and get a lot of sun and ventilation. The high quality of the grapes and the two years aging in french barriques give the wine power and structure as well as the ability age very well.
Deep and elegant. Has the ability to age for quite some time – the taste is fresh even after 15 years or more. A very nice tuscan version of this grape from Bordeaux!
For festive meals. Or just with some snacks like Grissini and olives – let the wine be the main act!
