Merlot is a black grape variety originating from the Gironde, in South-West France, and in particular from the area of Bordeaux from which some of the most prestigious wines in the world are produced (blended with Cabernet).
In Italy Merlot arrived at the end of the 1800s, in Friuli-Venezia Giulia, and then quickly spread to Veneto and Trentino-Alto Adige. In these areas the Merlot grape variety has found ideal environmental conditions, but is now widespread in many other regions, with sometimes surprising results, even without the contribution of other grapes.
The Lucanian winery producing the Rosé ’54 has done just that, it has put together the Merlot and Aglianico grapes to create a rosé with an intense pink colour, with fruity and slightly floral scents.
It goes perfectly with fish first courses, fresh cheeses but also with pizza.
Excellent as an aperitif, it is ideal served at a temperature between 12° and 14°.
