SOL NEGRU Merlot

95 MDL

The wines that are obtained from Merlot are velvety, intense, with a beautiful dark ruby ​​color. The bouquet offers fruits like blueberries, blackcurrant, plums, cherries, tomato leaves, rhubarb, and subtle earthy notes. At the palette, it is broad, deep, juicy, and dripping blackberries and cherry notes. In the mouth, the tannins are full-bodied, velvety, combined with a pleasant crunchiness you won’t forget so easily.
