Harvest and Vinification Notes
The Merlot grapes are hand-picked during the first ten days of October. First they are pressed, then they undergo a crushing process for 7 days in order to extract the color, aromas, and noble tannins. Fining takes place partly in steel and partly in oak barrels to give the wine a soft yet elegant hint of vanilla.
Far from the hectic city life, the Estate vineyards are cradled in the remote Venetian countryside, in proximity of the historic town of Annone Veneto. Our selected Polvaro Tenuta grapes are grown in the Lison Classico D.O.C.G. zone, the oldest and most genuine area in the whole Lison region. This area, which spans less than 10 miles (16 km) from east to west and occupies the very western edge of the wider Lison area, is one of the most suitable areas of Veneto for grapevine cultivation.
