Wine Details

Vigna Del Lauro Merlot Isonzo DOC

Intense ruby red with garnet reflections. Fruity, slight herbaceous, with distinct raspberry fragrance in youth, in time acquiring aromatic complexity and notes of cherry, berry, and violets. Full, dry, and slightly tannic, with great body and texture. Pairs well with both white and red meat, game, and seasoned cheeses.
