Merlot Trentino DOC - Cantina Aldeno

There is no grape variety that can guarantee the same pleasant sensation of softness and roundness on the palate as a rich Merlot. Especially if, as in this case, it is cultivated with care and attention in a unique environment in terms of climate and exposure. We are in Trentino, where the winemakers of the historic Aldeno Winery cultivate their vineyards partly with the Guyot system and partly with the traditional Trentino pergola. An ancient and increasingly rare system that allows the harvesting of high quality grapes. Pure Merlot, expertly vinified in simple temperature-controlled stainless steel containers. Then, after racking, it is aged in small and large, different-sized wooden barrels, depending on the year. The goal is to obtain a wine characterized by a beautiful ruby red colour, with a gratifying bouquet reminiscent of ripe red fruit, with a hint of sweet spices. In the mouth, it is dry but still round and gratifying. The tannins are soft and well perceived, making the finish pleasantly long.

There are few regions in Italy where cooperation in the field of wine produces better results than Trentino. In this case, the birth of the Cantina Sociale was the natural consequence of a viticulture that over the years has become increasingly central to the life of a small mountain village. Hills covered with pergolas and passionate men who cultivated their land to produce great wines of the area. Then, in 1910, a group of particularly far-sighted producers decided to bet everything on the wine of Aldeno, uniting their efforts in the Cantina Sociale. The intuition, today more than ever, is that in a competitive world like that of wine, the only way to emerge was to create a solid reality, capable of operating safely in all markets. A few years later, a second cooperative was born, the Unione Vinicola Aldeno. And the history of these two cooperatives will accompany the life of the community and the town for more than half a century. Until 1972, when the two companies merged, creating the current winery.
