More info

Merlot is one of the world’s most prized grapes. Conte Collalto’s vineyards,
planted in clay-rich soils on the left bank of the river Piave, bring out Merlot’s exquisitely rich fruit. We give the wine just a touch of oak, and the result is a red wine that is well delineated but not too heavy, styled as the perfect companion to the rich cuisine of the Veneto.
