Wine description

This sensational wine that belongs to the line Venica&Venica comes from the area of Collio, Friuli Venezia Giulia and it is produced with 100% Merlot. The wine making process considers that the maceration of the pressed grapes lasts for 8 days.  Then, the 50% of the must matures in big barrels (50 HL) and the other 50% in steel. During the maturation period, that lasts 7 month, the wine completes its malolactic fermentation.
