Closure: Cork / Cork Type
Wine Style: Medium Bodied Red
The first vintage of Clos Roareti, our single vineyard Merlot, was 2006, the grapes come from the historic monopole, Cru vineyard of Rovereti, in Negrar, Valpolicella. In this centuries old walled vineyard, we began to plant Merlot from the late 1990s onwards, a grape variety which is perfectly suited to the climate and the vineyard’s red clay soil. The resulting wine has rich, full bodied and complex Merlot characteristics on the nose and the palate alongside the aromatics of oak ageing, it is a unique departure from the lighter styles of Merlot from the Veneto region. Clos Roareti is not made every year but only in those years in which we believe the Merlot grapes reach the highest level.
We recommend decanting and serving around 16° C (or 60° F) and as an accompaniment to roast game or to red meats such as rack of lamb or fillet mignon.
Ageing potential: up to 10 years
