Sant Agnese Rubido
Rubido means very intense, fitting for this soft, rich Merlot. Fermentation is in cement vats at 25˚C with regular pumping over. The wine is then racked and held in concrete tanks for malolactic fermentation. The wine is then aged in barrique for eight months before a final assemblage and bottling.
Warming damson, truffle and mocha. Absolute classic merlot powerhouse, bitter chocolate, ripe jammy fruit, unlike any merlot I have bought, there haven't been many, this one is unrestrained and joyous - the Hagrid of wines. 14.5%
