The Desiderio Merlot is named after the white bull you see on the label. This impressive animal, weighing 1,673 kg / 3,688 lbs, lived on Avignonesi's estate Le Capezzine towards the end of the 19th century. He was, in fact, the largest bull in Cortona and was used to sire the rest of the cattle from the local breed "Chianina" in the region.
The Chianina has earned its fame as the breed which gives us the delicious meat for the famous "bistecca fiorentina " (Florentine T-bone steak) and is easily recognizable due to its striking white colour.
Ruby red.
Fresh notes of forest fruits such as blueberry and raspberry, intertwined with hints of sweet spices and Mediterranean herbs.
On the palate, it is long, soft and full-bodied with silky tannins and a persistent, fruity finish with a touch of dark chocolate.
