IGT Toscana Merlot 2016

We have decided to bottle a 100% Merlot for one reason only: at Solatione this variety expresses itself in an extraordinary way. The very pleasant notes of ripe red fruits, jam, currants and spices, in perfect combination with the soft and enveloping taste make it an excellent wine.
