Ciani Merlot


This wine is made from 100% Merlot grapes, carefully harvested by hand so that only the whole grapes reach the cellar, then soft pressed and macerated on the skins at a controlled temperature for 10 days followed by fermentation in stainless steel tanks and rest in the bottle before release.  This lovely  Merlot has a deep red color and rich fruity aromas reminiscent of stewed plums and berries. The taste is rich with bold cherry flavors and hints of exotic spices.  Ciani Merlot is a perfect wine to pair with steaks, or rich meat dishes such as maple glazed pork chops, pasta with meat sauces, or earthy meat dishes like roast lamb with ricotta gnocchi.  Serve at room temperature.
