Named for the oldest vineyard of Merlot, planted in Bossi 42 years ago, the muscular Girolamo is made entirely from Merlot grapes. After the harvest, the grapes are crushed and fermented in stainless steel for extra smoothness and complexity. Girolamo is then aged in Allier barriques for approximately two years, to achieve an elegant combination of fruitiness, softened tannins, and body.
Deep ruby red in color with purple highlights, Girolamo offers sumptuous aromas of black raspberries, blackberries, blueberries, sweet spice, and vanilla with hints of chocolate and dried herbs. On the palate, Girolamo has a soft and silky texture, backed by sweet, firm tannins ending with a long, fruit-laden finish.
Serve with rosemary pork roast with berry port wine sauce.
