    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.
