Alpa Premium Veneto Merlot 2011

Member Review by duncan 906:

I got given this bottle of wine at Christmas and as I made an Italian pasta dish for my meal on my day off I felt it appropriate to have this Italian wine with it. I have not been able to find out much abnot it.Veneto is one of Italy's major wine producing regions and is located in the north-east of the country around the towns of Venice,Verona and Padua.My bottle is an Indicazione Geographica Protetta which is a step below a DOC in the Italian wine heirarchy.I enjoyed my bottle.It was certainly fruity [think plums and blackcurrants]but the tannins were so soft as to be practically non-existant which surprised me as it is a fairly young bottle..It was an OK bottle of wine and I am not ungrateful for the gift but there are better merlots out there
