a light, elegant and slightly spicy merlot from weger in alto adige. as its of vintage 2008 this buddy is already ready to drink, and drinking nicely. a popular grape variety for a really good value.
a really really good piece of aged parmesan.
the wine gets 12 months in large oak barrels, which refines it but doesn’t add too much body.
the weger estate was founded in 1820 and six generations later, is still a family business. the estate lies in south tyrol, just below the alpine mountains. the high altitude and cool climate produces wines different from everything else in italy, more reminiscent of austrian wine.
