Made from Corvina and Merlot, this wine conveys a unique impression of fruity wholesomeness. It should always be served slightly chilled, especially in summer, when it will represent an enticing, new alternative to white wines and other light alcoholic beverages. Very easy drinking, it should be consumed while still young.

About the Producer

The fame of Folonari is due to its exceptional skill in selecting vineyards and grapes for producing wines of consistent quality and guaranteed authenticity. Its Pinot Grigio, Soave, Chardonnay and Merlot are distributed throughout the world.

Vineyard

The grapes are harvested from selected parcels of recently planned and planted vineyards in the Veneto and Trentino regions; the vines are trained largely by the Guyot system and partly by the “pergola trentina” system. Modern clones and stocks were carefully selected to optimize yields in relation to the microclimatic conditions of the area and consequently to the desired organoleptic characteristics of the wine.

Vinification

The grapes are picked towards the end of September by the most up-to-date methods of mechanical harvesting combined with traditional vintaging by hand, the different grapes are vinified separately.

Tasting Notes

Lively, medium cherry colour. Soft, enticing and modern bouquet of blackberries and raspberries. The flavour is refreshingly and delicately fruity with hints of fruits of the forest in the aftertaste.
