Grapes for the Recanati Merlot are grown in vineyards set in the hills of Jerusalem and Northern Galilee, where the diverse soil composition, ranging from deep red alluvial loam to porous marl, lends the grapes an intensely fruity character.
Deep garnet red. Robust, fruit-filled fragrance with hints of vanilla against a subtle background of cloves. Medium-bodied, reminiscent of ripe red berry fruit, strawberries and pomegranates.
Well matched with grilled red meats, poultry and flavorful pasta dishes, as well as a variety of Mediterranean-style entrées. Serve at room temperature or slightly chilled.
