"Siebeneich" Merlot Alto Adige DOC Riserva 2019 - Terlano

This Merlot, which grows best in warm, south-facing areas where the soil is clayey, is a full-bodied red wine that is particularly impressive for its finesse. This is explained by Rudi Kofler, oenologist at the Terlan Winery, who really knows his stuff about South Tyrolean wines. The subject is the good Siebeneich, Merlot dell'Alto Adige DOC Riserva, which comes from a careful selection of grapes grown by the winery's members. A long-lived and complex red, as is the style of the fine Terlan winery, this wine owes everything to the special characteristics of the area's soils, which are rich in minerals that provide positive stabilising effects and give the wines freshness and character. Sparkling ruby red in colour, the nose reveals intense and pleasant aromas. The fruity notes of blackberry and cranberry are complemented by aromas of herbs such as mint and eucalyptus, enriched by a veil of black pepper. In the mouth, then, one discovers a pleasantly tannic wine, with a complex structure and a lingering aftertaste.

Founded in 1893, the Cantina di Terlano is one of the most avant-garde wine cooperatives in the whole of Alto Adige. Its 143 current members cultivate 190 hectares of vineyards, producing a total annual output of around one and a half million bottles, divided into two lines, plus a few rarities of great oenological value. In the modern wine cellar, only DOC wines are produced, especially white wines, thanks to the new area created in 2009, where the wines have all the space they need to grow and develop to the full. From an architectural point of view, the Terlan Winery also deserves special mention. On the outside, part of the building has been covered with red porphyry, the typical rock of the area, while the roof of the winery has been greened and covered with vines, thus blending into the surrounding cultivated landscape. The wine archive of the cellar is unique in Italy with its 100,000 bottles from the 1955 vintage to the present day. However, the cellar also holds some ancient treasures: some bottles dating back to the year of its foundation!
