Cantina Sacchetto was founded in 1920 and today is run by Filiberto Sacchetto, alongside his son Paolo and daughter Beatrice. Together they oversee all aspects of the winemaking process, with attention, passion and great flexibility. Through innovation and investment in modern vinification techniques, they produce stunning still and sparkling wines for which the Veneto region has become famous.
2017 saw a cold winter with abundant rainfall. In the spring there were pockets of frost which delayed budburst in some vineyards. Warm, sunny weather over the summer period helped to restore the normal growth of the vines and the grapes were harvested in a healthy condition with good varietal characteristics.
The vines are grown in marl soils.
The grapes were destemmed prior to fermentation, which took place in temperature controlled stainless steel tanks with selected yeast. The wine was made in an unoaked style and was kept in tank until bottled to preserve its fresh style and purity of fruit.
Dry, but fruity, this Merlot is full of pure ripe plum notes, complemented by herbal nuances. Well structured with a hint of spice on the finish.
Accompanies cold cuts, grilled red meat, steaks, or poultry with tomato and mushroom sauces. Also delicious with simple chocolate desserts.
