Merlot was first planted in Alto Adige/Südtirol along with other Bordeaux varieties around 130 years ago. The spectrum of aromas ranges between blackberries, black currants, plum compote, and different spices. Merlot can provide the desired roundness and smoothness with fruity, full-bodied, charming wines with soft, ripe tannins.
