VIGNA

Only the term “Vigna”

guarantees the origin of a single-vineyard wine

and is combined with the famed name of the vineyard parcel.

Kirchegg Merlot Cabernet Sauvignon

Grape Variety: 80% Merlot, 20% Cabernet Sauvignon

Soil: Clay

Winemaking: On delivery to the winery the grapes are lightly crushed and de-stemmed, after which the must undergoes a brief maceration period and subsequent fermentation lasting 10 days. During fermentation the skins are kept continuously submerged in the must. Towards the end of the fermentation the temperature is allowed to rise a little in order to extract the maximum of colour and flavour from the grape skins.

Description: The Kirchegg Merlot - Cabernet Sauvignon is a classic accompaniment for robust dishes. Very rich and concentrated, full, deep ruby in colour with garnet reflexes. The bouquet combines the typical lightly herbaceous and cassis notes typical of Cabernet with the warm and fruity characteristics of Merlot. Cabernet’s acidity and supple tannins are both assertive on the palate and harmonise perfectly with the opulence and fruit deriving from Merlot. Great length.

Food Choices: Superb with rare roast beef or lamb and all the trimmings, rich casseroles, as well as game and mature cheeses.
