Product Description

Product Description

Montes Alpha Colchagua Merlot is ruby red in colour with lifted perfumes of berry fruits with a touch of spice. It combines the aromatics and tannins of good Nebbiolo with the acidity and dark fruits of Barbera to make a wonderfully intriguing wine with a fresh, supple finish.

The 80 hectare estate, of which 65 are under vine, is situated in the Bagnario Valley in the heart of the production zone for Moscato in Strevi. The vineyards are some of the best in the area, located in the Strevi hills which are around 300 metres above sea level. The soils are tufa, white in colour and rich in limestone. The vines are trained using the Guyot system.

Albarossa, a crossing of Nebbiolo and Barbera, is an interesting new grape variety created in 1938 by Professor Giovanni Dalmasso.

The growing season was long and sunny with little rain. The grapes reached optimum ripeness and were harvested on 20th and 21st September.

After pressing, a long maceration on the skins took place for 12-15 days in temperature controlled stainless steel vats. Malolatic fermentation then took place. The wine was aged in tonneaux and barriques for 12 months and then spent a further 6 months in bottle before release. It comes with the vintage information as follows: Vintage: 2009; Grape varieties: 100% Albarossa; Region: Piemonte; Closure: Natural cork; Winemaker: Patrizia Marenco; Alcohol (ABV): 12.5%; Acidity: 5.14g/l; Residual Sugar: 2.5g/l; Wine pH: 3.25.
