During the winter a careful malolactic fermentation is carried out. It stays for about a year in traditional large oak barrels and, after bottling, completes its aging in the bottle for a few months.
Color: Ruby red with purple reflections.
Bouquet: Vinous, fresh, harmonious, with fruit scents and underbrush notes.
Taste: Dry and tasty with a delicate almond nuance. Elegant finish rich in sweet tannins.
The name Novenove derives from 1999, the year this Merlot vineyard was cultivated according to ecological criteria in Agliano Terme. It is a wine of body and structure that expresses its characteristics just a few years after the harvest, but which optimally adapts itself to being aged, evolving and acquiring character with the passage of time.
It is well suited to any meal, but enhances its characteristics with first courses and important seconds.
