Merlot Falconera IGT 2008

Winemaker's Notes:

As the result of the notable experience of the Loredan Gasparini vinery’s in the production of red wines, this Merlot proposes the pleasantness of the Montello micro-territory (North of Venice). It is made from the Falconera vineyard located near Villa Spineda – Gasparini Loredan in Venegazzù, where once the noble hawking took place. It is mellow and convincing as a great wine also thanks to the refining for 12 months in big oak. Little secret of our winery is the blend of a hint of Malbec, coming from the same vineyard, that give freshness and a delicate spices notes.

RiceSelect's fragrant Jasmati® is blended with eggs, milk and fall's favorite spices, cinnamon and nutmeg, to create a delicious rice pudding, which is layered on top of fluffy cream cheese and abuttery pecan crust. Pairs well with a bold, tawny port with flavors of dried fruits, nuts, and spices.
