Not only fascinating white wines come from the region of Lake Garda. This Merlot is a real insider tip. Deep ruby red colour, in the nose ethereal notes and aromas of ripe red fruits unfold. Added to this are coffee notes on the palate and finally intense chocolaty aromas. Fascinatingly rich texture, velvety and of great elegance. A wine for great moments.
It can be enjoyed with more robust dishes, mature cheese, or simply after a meal.
Selection of the best Merlot grapes. After the harvest, the grapes are dried in the attic before being pressed. Ageing: 24 months in French barriques
Where others spend their holidays, the Olivini Winery is at home. The winery is located near Desenzano and cultivates some of the most beautiful hillsides at the southern tip of Lake Garda. The Olivini family has owned vineyards for many generations, but used to sell their wines openly to other wineries. About 10 years ago, together with the oenologist Anntonio Crescini, they began to develop the wines themselves and market them under their own name. The winery is run by the siblings Giovanni, Giorgio and Giordana Olivini, who are passionately promoting the autochthonous grape variety Turbiano, also known as Trebbiano Lugana.
