Brand: Martin Ulisse
Region: Abruzzo (Italy)
Area: Terre di Chieti
Vines: 85% Merlot / 15% Montepulciano
A well balanced Merlot with flavors of plum, dark cherry and hints of sage.
The addition of 15% Montepulciano grape gives this medium bodied Merlot flavors of plum and dark cherries balancing the natural heat and acidity. With distant Mediterranean accents this Merlot has a refined herbal edge with hints of sage and minerality and a touch of cocoa powder on the finish. Although a young wine allowing it to breathe for a brief time will maximize the aromas and flavors. Pairs beautifully with red meats, game and mature cheese.
