Merlot
The expression of Fossifoco is represented by Merlot in its great territorial identity.

Colour

Intense deep ruby red with violet notes.

Nose

Wine of extraordinary identity, very intense, elegant, complex and refined; hints of medicinal herbs, scrub, forest, fresh spices combined with fruity notes of small black and red fruits.

Palate

Sweet, dense, voluminous, long and balanced tannin with a fresh acidity that extends into long and intense fruity and spicy notes. Full-bodied, elegant and austere wine where the fruit, spices and balsamic freshness dance in a unique and bewitching mix. It closes with a long a ertaste, spicy, balsamic, savory and mineral.

After a careful green harvest, the grapes, when they have reached maturity, are harvested by hand in small crates, cooled overnight and then checked on the double sorting table. Fermentation is spontaneous, with its own indigenous yeasts, and takes place in small stainless steel tanks at a controlled temperature. After maceration on the skins, the wine is drawn off and decanted directly
into barriques of the best selection of French fine-grained oak, where the malolactic fermentation
takes place.

Elevation

It is aged in French oak barriques for 18 months. It ages in the bottle for a minimum of 6 months before being placed on the market.
