Aniello Corte "Soil" Merlot
Aniello Soil Merlot is their top Merlot, a blend of different parcels of Merlot grown on different soils (gravel, sand and clay), hence the name. All grapes are hand harvested, each block harvested separately at different times at full ripeness. Then fermented separately and finally blended to taste. It's a great wine. Big, opulent with juicy black fruit. Smooth and integrated and very natural in style.
Santiago Bernasconi and his team have renovated the old, beautiful little winery and have breathed new life into the vineyard. The wines themselves represent the modern face of Patagonia - fresh, lean, elegant and beautifully concentrated.
