Producer: Mezzacorona is a driving force behind the quality of Trentino wines with
a state-of-the-art winery handling estate-grown fruit from the company’s
extensive vineyard holdings in the heart of the Dolomites. The fifteenthcentury
Castel Firmian overlooks the Rotaliano plain in Trentino, and
the wines named after it also give an overview of the region, with both
international and local varieties on offer, all crisp and expressive.

Vineyard: The fruit for this wine comes exclusively from Mezzacorona’s vineyards
in areas north of Lake Garda, an area particularly suited to the cultivation
of Merlot.

Winery: The juice underwent traditional red vinification with maceration on
the skins for a period of six to seven days. Temperature-controlled
fermentation was at 26-28ºC, and the wine had a short refinement in oak
barrels for six to eight months.

Taste: Intense fragrance with a mixture of ripe fruits and a hint of oak. Dry,
complex and well-structured palate.
