    Winemaker Notes

    Agnus Merlot has an exquisite ruby red color and a delicate, complex aroma, with classic Merlot characteristics in its bouquet including red, ripe fruits such as strawberry, raspberry, and black mulberry. The palate will experience balanced, mature tannins, a smooth and harmonious wine which unveils a pleasant fruit taste, and a long finish.

    Agnus Merlot is a versatile wine with regard to gastronomy, and is an excellent complement to pasta, risotto, poultry, barbecue, lamb, duck, beef, mature cheeses, and robust red-sauce dishes.

    In 2001, the Lidio Carraro winery started operating. In the same year the family acquired 200 acres in Encruzilhada do Sul, Southeast region of Rio Grande do Sul state. Later on, this area became recognized as a prestigious wine region in Brazil.

    Earliest harvest of Vale dos Vinhedos vineyards took place in 2002, which is what allowed for the creation of Lidio Carraro's first wines, that were released to the market in 2004. Shortly thereafter, the wineryprovides a selection to represent Brazilian wines at the Duty-free international airports’ stores, becoming the first Brazilian producer to do it, in its own country. In 2005, the winery opened the doors to the world and Lidio Carraro started having international attention, leading to the first export.

    An easy-going red variety with generous fruit and a supple texture, Merlot can be made into a range of styles from everyday-drinking to world-renowned and age-worthy. Merlot is the dominant variety in the best wines from Bordeaux’s Right Bank regions of St. Emilion and Pomerol where it is blended with Cabernet Franc. On the Left Bank in the Medoc, it plays a supporting role to Cabernet Sauvignon—in both cases resulting in some of the longest-lived and highest-quality wines in the world. Merlot also frequently shines on its own, particularly from California’s Napa Valley.

    In the Glass

    Merlot is known for its soft, silky texture and approachable flavors of ripe plum, red and black cherry and raspberry. In a cool climate, you may find earthier notes alongside dried herbs, tobacco and tar, while Merlot from warmer regions is generally more straightforward and fruit-focused.

    Perfect Pairings

    Lamb with Merlot is an ideal match—the sweetness of the meat picks up on the sweet fruit flavors of the wine to create a harmonious balance. Merlot’s gentle tannins allow for a hint of spice and its medium weight and bright acidity permit the possibilities of simple pizza or pasta with red sauce—overall, an extremely versatile food wine.

    Sommelier Secret

    Since the release of the 2004 film Sideways, Merlot's repuation has taken a big hit, and more than a decade later has yet to fully recover, though it is on its way. What many viewers didn't realize was that as much as Miles derided the variety, the prized wine of his collection—a 1961 Château Cheval Blanc—is made from a blend of Merlot with Cabernet Franc.
