Focus Zuc di Volpe


Merlot Zuc di Volpe

This wine is the result of a selection of the best Merlot grapes coming from the vineyards of Prepotto, which have an average age of 20 years. The idea has been to make a “Focus” on a particular grape variety, the Merlot, that can now be defined as an “adopted” indigenous grape of Friuli, being by now part of the “genetic code” of the inhabitants of Friuli. Its color is ruby red, dark and impenetrable, to the nose has hints of blackberry, black cherry, licorice; wine of great structure, velvely and persistent.
