Poggio ai Merli is made entirely from Merlot, and named after the single vineyard from which it is produced. Located in the heart of Chianti Classico, grapes are imbued with all the terroir-driven characteristics of Tuscany's most famous viticultural area. This wine embodies Castellare's innovation by producing international varietals in an area world-famous for Sangiovese.
Deep ruby red in color with purple reflections, this Merlot is loaded with enticing aromas of ripe blackberries, sweet cherry plums, cassis, and vanilla. Equally flavorful on the palate, Poggio ai Merli is full-bodied with a persistent and complex finish.
This seductive red would be the ideal partner for pan-seared venison loin with balsamic blueberry sauce.
