Tasting note information
Merlot is loved the world over for its velvety smooth fruit, and the star, of course, in Saint Emilion and Pomerol. This grape may not be a native of Italy but it has been adopted for decades in the north and centre of the country. The grapes for Il Basso were sourced from both Romagna and Abruzzo. Romagna is a region renowned for its gastronomy – Parmesan, Parma ham, prosciutto, balsamic vinegar and rich pasta. Typically its wines have a brightness that complements the cuisine. You’ll certainly find that in Il Basso, the acidity balancing the darker fruit notes of richer, riper Abruzzo Merlot. Il Basso is designed to be all fruit, no oak – a delectable style to enjoy on its own or with white meats, vegetable kebabs or simple pasta dishes.
