MERLOT
IGT Veneto

Merlot has been talked about since the 1700s. Its area of choice is undoubtedly Bordeaux where the soils, composed of iron-rich clay, give the best results. In most parts of the world, it is blended with Cabernet Sauvignon. At Basalghelle, we grow it in a clay-limy type soil of alluvial origin, which gives it quality, softness and longevity
