Sito dell’Ulmo Merlot Sicilia DOC PLANETA
Sito dell’ Ulmo is a single-vineyard 100% Merlot. Our experience made us find in those vineyards, planted in 1987 on the river of Lago Arancio, the ideal place for the cultivation of this French grape. The soft pressing is followed by 14 days maceration on skins. After the alcoholic fermentation, managed at 28°, starts the malolactic in steel, while the aging is managed in barriques for 14 months. Half of the barrels, made of Allier oak, is new.
