The Recanati Reserve Merlot is an elegant full bodied red wine with a rich Bordeaux color. Its bouquest of red berries, cassis, and roses is marked by white pepper, vanilla, cloves, and green olives. A small percentage of Cabernet Sauvignon gives the Merlot extra structure, depth and aging potential. This Merlot will gain complexity and character with 3-8 years cellaring and should age gracefully for at least a decade.
Grown in Israel's Northern Galilee--a climate identical to Napa Valley--Merlot grapes are hand harvested only after passing a stringent "physiological ripeness" test.
Served at cool room temperature it make s a wonderful companion to classic cuts of beef, lamb, or fowl. And an elegant accompaniment to risotto, porcini lasagna, steak florentine as well as rich Italian cheeses.
