Platinum

Vintage : 2012
Type: Ticino DOC Merlot

Varietal composition: Merlot
Vinification: Harvested at the peak of maturity, the grapes were first left to dry on palettes in thermo ventilated rooms. The classic vinification began with crushing in mid-October followed by fermentation in temperature-controlled stainless-steel tanks. The wine matured for 20 months in barriques of new French oak.
Frequent racking from the lees allowed for bottling without fining, filtration or other physical stabilization. This may result in slight sediment in the bottle.

Alcohol content: 14 %

Color: Intense, deep ruby red.

Bouquet: Intense and lasting impressions of ripe blackberry fruits, are followed by elegant
roasted notes that remind cinammon, liquorice and dark chocolate. Very complex!
Palate: A powerful wine that nonetheless impresses with great elegance and ripe, soft tannins of perfect quality and strength. An excellently structured Platinum that leaves a lasting impression. It will reward patient cellaring and is also fully enjoyable now.

Dining choices: Recommended with red meat and game dishes, and with hard cheeses. A “vino di meditazione” whose complexity merits full attention, it may also stand alone.
Serving temperature: 18º C
Aging: The Platinum 2012 will reveal its full expressive potential beginning in fall 2015, and will continue to develop in character through 2027 and beyond if properly cellared.

Packaging: 75 cl. in cartons of 6 bottles
