The Danzante 2002 Merlot unfolds in velvety layers of plum and blueberry, with nuances of spicy cinnamon and fresh pepper. This intense ruby red and purple-hued wine has a soft, smooth mouthfeel with balanced tannins. The flavors carry through the sweet, persistent finish. To achieve the approachable, fruit-forward style of Danzante Merlot, selected hillside vineyards were selected in the province of Agrigento, Sicily. Sicily, Italy's southernmost region, has been an important winegrowing area for nearly 3,000 years. Enjoy this wine with pasta dishes with spicy vegetable and cheese sauces. Or try it with chicken stew or baked rabbit.
