GABRINO Merlot Umbria IGT



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 “nikename” of the Dionigi family and comes from Grabiele Dionigi, who founded the company in 1896.

It is a very strucured wine with a significal alcohol contente, but at the same time smooth and captivating, almost a meditation wine.

It suits rich and elaborate dishes, red meat with porcini but also stewed and grilled meat.

Serve at 18°C.
