Inama Azienda Agricola Campo del Lago Merlot

Historical label of the territory: this wine was originally produced in the 1960s and 1970s by the estate Villa del Ferro Lazzarini, from whom Inama recently purchased their vineyards.

This wine is dedicated to its creator Alfredo Lazzarini; it holds a history of the Colli Berici that must not be forgotten. One of the first vintages produced by Alfredo Lazzarini was defined by the great wine and gastronomic journalist Luigi Veronelli as an “unimaginable wine, comparable because of its esoteric charm to the best Paulliac.” Veronelli considered the Colli Berici as one of the best areas for the Bordelaise varieties, alongside the Bolgheri area.

Tasting Notes

Deep red color. Elegant nose of berries and plums, together with muldberry, pine and hints of clove. On the palate, wild berries with a final of undergrowth, cocoa and coffee. Soft and round, with a good freshness.

Grape variety: 100% Merlot.

Vinification: All varieties are 100% destemmed. After 12 days' maceration in upright stainless fermenters with internal paddles, the must is racked and malo occurs in steel. The wine is aged in 2nd fill 225l French oak barriques for 12 months. A final racking is followed by a gentle pad filtration before bottling. The wine is unfined.

Best served with: Grilled filetto di sorana.
