Mezzacorona Castel Firmian Merlot 2017

The Castel Firmian wines by Mezzacorona are a true expression of Trentino history and wine making tradition. Sourced from the foot of the Dolomites the grapes benefit from an alpine climate, which designs the balanced bouquet and the aromatic intensity of each wine. Grapes for the Mezzacorona Castel Firmian Merlot are cultivated north of Lake Garda, in the lower Trentino. Aged for up to 8 months in oak this award winning Merlot offers an intense bouquet with notes of wild berries and ripe fruit. Dry, complex and well structured on the palate.

Gold Medal - Sommelier Wine Awards 2019

Judges were impressed by this great-value Gold’s ‘maraschino cherries and
baked plum notes, with a grippy, chalky texture and smooth tannins’, began The
Glasshouse’s Adam Michocki, while Immacolata Cannavo of Hakkasan Mayfair spoke
highly of its ‘bright red fruit flavours of cherry and strawberry’, before describing it
as ‘quite earthy, but with light, supple tannins’. ‘A very fresh wine, with black pepper
spice and herbal, rosemary notes,’ added Flat Three Restaurant’s Heesoo Kang.
