SODALE MERLOT 2015 FAMIGLIA COTARELLA
Varietal: 100% Merlot
The Merlot vines thrive on the calcium-rich, volcanic soils of Montefiascone in Lazio. Deep purple in color, Sodale is redolant with inky black fruit, sweet spice, and mineral- all of which are woven together tighlty. On the palate the wine is juicy yet structured with abundant tannin that is polished and supple in texture. A balanced finish of medium length legs another sip and makes Sodale an indespensable everyday drinker.
RATING: 88 points – Wine Spectator
“An easy-drinking, balanced, medium-bodied red, with snappy black cherry, anise and tar notes. Light tannins show on the finish.”
