Robed in a rich Bordeaux hue, The Recanati Reserve Merlot is an elegant full bodied red wine. This aromatic red wine is redolent with vanilla, spicy cloves and red berry flavors typical of great Merlot. A small percentage of Cabernet Sauvignon gives the Merlot extra structure, depth and aging potential. This Merlot will gain complexity and character with 3-8 years cellaring and should age gracefully for at least a decade.
Best served at 18°-20°C with cuts of beef, lamb, or fowl. Also an elegant accompaniment to risotto, porcini lasagna, steak florentine as well as rich Italian cheeses..
