Description: Bright ruby red with a full bouquet of cranberries, cherries, plums and raspberries, Bolla Merlot has an appealing, bright black-cherry character enhanced by hints of licorice, vanilla, and clove derived from the wood aging. A dry, savory and harmonic taste with a distinct finish of wild berries.
Bolla uses only fully mature grapes, in order to achieve the maximum expression of Merlot’s varietal character. The grapes are hand-picked at the correct ripeness and vinified on the skins with about 15 days maceration. The wine is fermented in temperature controlled stainless steel tanks and then undergoes malolactic fermentation. 10% of the wine is aged for 4 months in both American and French oak barrels before blending and bottling to add structure and character.
Bolla Merlot is a perfect match for grilled red meats, cold meats, and semi-aged cheeses.
