In Vineyard

100% Merlot grapes grown from our own vineyards in Pramaggiore.  The vineyard is situated 25 – 40 metres above sea level with medium texture and clayey soil.  Sylvoz is the growing method used.

In Cellar

Red vinification of Merlot grapes.  Fermentation takes place on the skins in steel vats for 8-10 days at a controlled temperature of 24-26 °C, on carefully selected yeasts.  After racking off the wine is held in steel vats until bottling.

In Tasting

The colour is deep ruby red and the scent is intense and clean with hints of violets and mixed berries. Well-balanced, fine flavour with evident tannins perfectly integrated into the structure.

Pairings

Goes well with red meat, roast meat and in general with flavourful meat dishes

MerlotIGTAi GalliVeneto
Merlot – is a dark blue-colored wine grape variety, that is used as both a blending grape and for varietal wines. Merlot’s low acidity serves as a balance for the higher acidity in many Italian wine grapes with the grape often being used in blends in the Veneto.
IGT – Indicazione geografica tipica is the third of four classifications of wine recognized by the government of Italy.
Ai Galli – The farm Azienda Agricola Ai Galli was built about the seventies and now is set in nearly 50 hectares of vineyards, which are all situated in the D.O.C. (controlled designation of origin) Lison-Pramaggiore production area. The production of a wide range of good wines has been more and more appreciated by wine connoisseurs. The awards won in the last years are not final achievements for the company, but a confirmation that the undertaken way is the right one.
Veneto – is a substantial and increasingly important wine region in the northeastern corner of Italy. Veneto is slightly smaller than Italy’s other main wine-producing regions – Piedmont, Tuscany, Lombardy, Puglia and Sicily – yet it generates more wine than any of them. Today more than 25 percent of the region’s wine is made and sold under DOC/DOCG titles.
