Riflessi d'Epoca

Vintage : 2015
Type: Ticino DOC Merlot

Varietal composition: Merlot

Vinification: The grapes are carefully selected and vinified in the traditional bordelaise method with a long maceration of 13 – 17 days at 30 – 32°C. Once fermentation is complete, the wine is matured for over 13 months in barriques of French oak. Frequent racking from the lees allows for bottling without fining, filtration or other physical stabilization. This may result in a slight sediment in the bottle.

Alcohol content: 13.2 % Vol.

Color: Intense and deep ruby red.

Bouquet: Complex and intense. Fruity notes of plum and blackcherry, and roasted hints
that remind liquorice. Delicate nuances of spices.

Palate: Smooth and elegant. Fresh and fruity, well-bodied with a good structure and tannins of perfect quality and strength. Well balanced, harmonious and persistent at the finish.

Dining choices: Fine meats of the haute cuisine – game and fowl, roast beef – and fine savoury cheeses.

Serving temperature: 18° C

Aging: The Riflessi d’Epoca 2015 will reveal its full expressive potential beginning in spring 2018, and will continue to develop in character through 2025 and beyond if properly cellared. Best if uncorked and decanted several hours before pouring.
