- Other Info:
- The first vintage of Clos Roareti, the single vineyard Merlot, was 2004. The grapes come from the historic monopole, Cru vineyard of Rovereti, in Negrar, Valpolicella. In this 100 year old walled vineyard from the late 1990s Guerrieri Rizzardi planted Merlot, which is perfectly suited to the climate and the red clay soil. The resulting wine has rich, full bodied and complex Merlot characteristics on the nose and the palate alongside the aromatics of oak ageing, a unique departure from the lighter styles of Merlot of Veneto. Clos Roareti is not made every year but only in those years when the Merlot grapes are of the highest level.
This Merlot is well balanced, with notes of dark cherry, tobacco, spice and oak. Full bodied, rich and voluptuous with good balance and complexity.
