Merlot Collio DOC 2017 - Ferruccio Sgubin

Great pleasantness is guaranteed by this international red wine. Produced from pure Merlot grapes, it is bottled without filtration to preserve its integrity. The grapes, which come from the estate vineyards, are hand-picked when fully ripe. Quickly brought to the cellar, they are processed within a few hours. Vinification begins with a long maceration phase that lasts about 2 weeks. In this phase the slow transformation of the sugars into alcohol and the manual fulling operations allow the wine to reach the right colour. Then, after racking, maturation takes place partly in steel tanks and partly in small oak casks of 500 litres capacity, where malolactic fermentation also takes place. It takes between 14 and 16 months to reach the right degree of maturity. After bottling, it remains in the cellar for at least 4 months for a further period of refinement before being put on the market. It is the right red to propose when the menu is all about meat. Excellent, in particular, with roasts or grilled meats.

It was 1960. In Dolegna del Collio, in the locality of Mernico, Ferruccio Sgubin founded his company. He had a dream, that of producing quality wines with respect for his land. A polar star that Ferruccio - and after him his heirs - have never lost sight of. To achieve this, over the years, all efforts have been concentrated on the development of the company, creating a modern winery, equipped with all the most innovative equipment. The vineyards are located in the hills, where they sink their roots into marly soils. Here the views are breathtakingly beautiful and the environment is perfect for growing healthy, fragrant grapes. And from such fruits, only excellent wines can be born.
