Alexis Paraschos, Merlot (2014). Friuli-Venezia Giulia, Italy. Merlot.
Merlot by Paraschos is a pure and genuine red wine from Collio, born of spontaneous fermentation in oak barrels and bottled without the addition of a solforsa. It has a large and complex bouquet in which notes of spices, undergrowth, red fruit and flowers are interwoven. On the palate it reveals an intense and structured body, energized by a lively freshness that extends its sip towards a finish of long persistence.
