From Piera, Terre Magre 2021 Merlot is a vibrant, medium-bodied, plummy, cherry, mocha and nutty flavoured Merlot from the Friuli wine region. A portion of the grapes for this vintage were allowed to dry over 60 days in a temperature-controlled room with the balance of grapes de-stemmed, crushed and left to ferment and macerate in steel tanks for 20 days. In December, the dried grapes were crushed, de-stemmed and fermented. After malolactic conversion, the two batches were blended in late-January and rested until the spring. Enjoy with grilled meats.

Merlot food pairings: roast pork, veal chops from the grill, roast goose.
