Its full body warms the palate and is sustained by a good acid content which makes it a truly unique Wine.
Full, ruby red.
Deep ruby red with garnet hue. Wide and full bouquet recalling morello cherry, blackberries and prunes. A hint of aromatic herbs and the typical note of stone give this wine serious features to which oak have added a gentle touch of vanilla. Dry, austere, flavoursome, rather acidulous and tannic taste.
30% off a classic wine of Veneto wine making from one of the finest producers in the area. MORE INFO

The choice of elective terroir and the improvement of the more consistent techniques of vineyard to its characteristics, have allowed the Merlot to abandon, in these last years,the dresses of vine from the great productivity transforming it from comprimario of luxury in soloist appreciated. Sturdy wine and at the same time of innate elegance, it expresses in the youth his best dowries.

The La Montecchia estate is primarily concerned with viticulture, an activity established here since the Middle Ages. Petrarch himself appreciated the local vintage, making his home at Arquà at the southern foot of the Euganean Hills. The present owner, count Umberto Emo Capodilista, started renovating the vineyards and the cellars at the beginning of the ‘90ies, making his son Giordano Emo Capodilista responsible for the managment of the estate, assisted by the oeunologist Andrea Boaretti and the agronomist Patrizio Gasparinetti. Prizes and recognition from the most notable wine critics like Robert Parker, Luca Maroni, "Gambero Rosso" and Luigi Veronelli have encouraged Giordano Emo to continue in this manner. Half of production is exported abroad. Black grapes predominate on these 45 hectares:Cabernet Franc, Cabernet Sauvignon, Carmenere, Merlot and Raboso - a local variety that is picked late - are cultivated here. Merlot and Cabernet have been grown in La Montecchia since the 19th century and are justifiably regarded as local vines. The white varieties are Chardonnay, Moscato Fior d’Arancio and Pinot Bianco. All varieties - except the basic “Colli Euganei Rosso” wine of the estate called "Cadeto" which is made with Merlot and Cabernet and the cru "Villa Capodilista" which is made with Merlot, Cabernet and Raboso - are bottled as single variety (“vinificati in purezza”). You might also want to try the Moscato Fior d’Arancio made with the Moscato grape which is put to dry before it is pressed and produces an highly acclaimed dessert wine sold in half-size bottles.
