MERLOT IGT UMBRIA
The oldest wine in Dionigi’s production. A pure Merlot aged in large oak barrels for about two years, it has accompanied our company since its foundation.
Its name is the “nickname” of Dionigi family and comes from Gabriele Dionigi who founded the company in 1896.
It is very structured with a significant alcohol content but at the same time smooth and captivating, almost a meditation wine. It suits rich and elaborate dishes.
Serve at 18°C.
