Sirch Friuli Colli Orientali Merlot 2020
This red grape variety, originally from Gironde, has become very popular internationally, establishing itself in Friuli Venezia Giulia and in particular in the Friuli Colli Orientali DOC area, its best expression. It has been mentioned since the 18th century, but in Friuli it was described only at the end of the 19th century in the area of Cividale and in a 1921 exhibition. As early as 1933, Professor Dalmasso tasted excellent samples, as he wrote in “Agricoltura Friulana”, and after the Cividale Exhibition he considered Merlot a grape suitable for making wines for ageing as well.
