CLOS ROARETI, Rosso Veronese IGT

The first year of production of the Clos Roareti, our Merlot, was 2006. The grapes are harvested from a part of the family’s estate where we have grown Merlot grapes since the late 1990s, a variety that we found was perfectly adapted to the climate and the red clay soil.The resulting wine has rich, full bodied and complex Merlot characteristics on the nose and the palate alongside the aromatics of oak ageing, it is a unique departure from the lighter styles of Merlot from the Veneto region. Clos Roareti is not made every year but only in those years in which we believe the Merlot grapes reach the highest level.

We recommend decanting and serving around 16° C (or 60° F) and as an accompaniment to roast game or to red meats such as rack of lamb or fillet mignon.

Ageing potential: up to 10 years
