Poderi del Paradiso
A Fillipo Merlot 2010
Sipping this Tuscan Merlot in the cellar with a good friend. This 100% Merlot grapes are picked in October by hand. Aging in new barriques of French oak for 18 months. Dark red, allmost black in the glass. In the nose earth, blueberries, prunes and cassis liquor enveloping into dark chocolate and clove. On the palate dense and chewy with strking and velvety tannins. Great balance between acidity and tannins. After some time in the glass it evens gets better. Great wine with high complexity and perfect ending.
