Description

Very intense and powerful bouquet. Smells wonderfully of ripe plums, black cherries, pepper, lilac and a hint of pine resin. A Merlot with exceptionally complex aromas. Already with the first sip you feel the stimulating juiciness. Elegant and silky tannins with a fine grip. Beautiful structured wine with great balance. Aromas of dark chocolate with black cherry, vanilla pod, nutmeg and dried figs unite on the palate. A long finish rounds off this Merlot.

Italy – Where wine is a way of life

The Italian wine regions are extremely diverse, and this is made clear in their wines. Established varieties such as Merlot, Syrah, and Sauvignon can be found on just 15 percent of the total vine growing area. The remaining 85 percent is reserved for autochthonous, indigenous varieties. More than 2,000 different grape varieties are grown under diverse conditions and pressed with various techniques into wines that reach the top tier of the international wine market.

Producers

Rosa Bosco

Rosa Bosco, already somewhat of a legend in the oenological world of Friuli, founded her label “RB” in 1998. Her wines are vinified and aged in the de Puppi family’s traditional azienda according to the credo "quality without compromise”.

At first, Rosetta – as she is affectionately known – bought her grapes from winegrowers who were friends of hers and who grew wine exactly according to her own ideas. In 2003, she placed production in the hands of the de Puppi family.

Grape varieties

Merlot

Everybody’s darling

Merlot is the most charming member of the Bordeaux family. It shines with rich colour, fragrant fullness, velvety tannins and sweet, plummy fruit. It even makes itself easy for the vintner, as it matures without issue in cool years as well. This is in contrast to the stricter Cabernet Sauvignon, which it complements as a blending partner. Its good qualities have made the Merlot famous worldwide. At over 100,000 hectares, it is the most-planted grape in France. It also covers large areas in California, Italy, Australia and recently in Eastern Europe. The only catch is that pure Merlot varieties rarely turn out well. Its charm is often associated with a lack of substance. Only the best specimens improve with maturity. They then develop complex notes of leather and truffles. This succeeds in the top wines from the Bordeaux appellation of Pomerol and those from Ticino, among others.
