Fasoli Gino Merlot IGT 'Orgno'

Merlot was planted in the Orgno vineyard in 1978 as we wanted to see if our land, traditionally used to produce white wines, was also able to produce red wines of great quality. We were happy with the results: Merlot worked well in our area but we decided to wait 10 years before releasing it on the market so that it would reach the levels of quality that we demand.

The grapes are fermented in stainless steel tanks at controlled temperatures. The wine is left to fine in French oak barrels for 36 months.

The grapes are harvested by hand in the first fortnight of September. The grapes are hung by hand to dry on wires for 80 days following the local tradition of appasimento.
