Montepulciano - IGT Toscana

Explosive olfactory impact. The wide aromatic bouquet ranges from cherry and plum jam to notes of black tea, rhubarb and graphite, with small final notes of fermented tobacco. The palate is invested by the imposing and typical structure of Tuscan Merlot wrapping and warm. Tastefully in symbiosis with the olfactory notes, the dense and linear tannin accompanies nuances of coconut and black pepper in the back.

Perfect to drink now, improves with time up to 15 years

A 100% Merlot wine that is perfect to pair game meat recipes. Desiderio was a bull who lived on the Le Capezzine farm in Avignonesi more than a hundred years ago. The largest bull in Tuscany at that time, this majestic animal contributed to defining the Chianina cattle breed, specific of the Bistecca Fiorentina. It was a natural choice to dedicate this Merlot to the beloved bull as a testimony of the origin of the wines. This is Merlot from Tuscany at its best. The producer, Avignonesi extend in the Montepulciano and Cortona areas (in the Val di Chiana in the province of Arezzo) ensuring a diversified spectrum of soils that allows the production of a Vino Nobile di Montepulciano that authentically expresses the complexity of the terroir, while the Val di Chiana is suitable for the cultivation of other grape varieties such as Merlot, Chardonnay and Cabernet Sauvignon.
