    Wine Tasting NotesA wine of intense red color with violet reflections, Danzante Merlot has an inviting bouquet of black currant and blueberries enhanced by nuances of sweet spices, such as cinnamon. The lively fruit flavors of plums and berries give this wine a personality that is delightfully different. Enjoy it with a variety of dishes, especially Prosciutto, vegetables, mushrooms and black truffles.

    Tasting Notes:

    The 2009 Danzante Merlot appears a rich ruby red, with subtle purplish highlights. The nose initially reveals emphatic notes of wild red berryfruit, such as wild cherry and blueberry, which expand into a spacious background marked by pungent black pepper, semi-sweet chocolate, and black liquorice. The palate shows pleasing warmth and a smooth mouthfeel, its crisp fruit beautifully complemented by a suite of dense-packed, silky tannins. An almost endless finish provides the wine's impressive conclusion.
