Vineyard & Winemaking Notes
The D.O.C. Appellation (Denomination of Controlled Origin) is a guarantee that Candoni Merlot is produced only with the best grapes we cultivate in the Veneto region. Our vineyard yield is very low, which is the result of our quest for quality over quantity. Our winemaking philosophy is to emphasize the grapes’ pure varietal flavor. The climate helps to maintain a balance between acidity and sugar levels and allows the grapes a long, slow growing season, making our Candoni Merlot of excellent quality.
Candoni Merlot is particularly suitable for grilled meats, pizza, calamari, and pasta dishes.
How to Serve
Serve at 64.4° F in clear, transparent crystal goblets.
The bottle should be laid horizontally in a cool, dark cellar.
The Veneto region is located in Northeastern Italy, lying between the foothills of the Alps and the top of the Adriatic Sea. This ribbon of land, nestled among picturesque vineyards, is home to charming cities such as Verona, Vicenza, Padova, Treviso, and Veneto’s crowning beauty: Venice.
Veneto offers numerous combinations of microclimates, thanks to the Dolomites blocking cold temperatures from central Europe, indigenous grapes and wine traditions that hold their own in spectacular fashion. No other region boasts such winemaking diversity in such close proximity.
From hearty reds to fragrant sparklers, these radically unique expressions are representative of what drives Italy’s global wine success. Geography might help explain why this region is home to so many individual pockets of wine but it is especially the agricultural and entrepreneurial spirit of its people to make this area one of the leading wine making region in the world.
