Poggio Lupo, Della Luna Merlot 2016

 

The wine estate Poggio Lupo is a young company founded from the dream of Massimo, Manuela and Marco Morgante.

The farm is located in the municipality of Allerona, in the province of Terni (Italy). The territory is characterized by the presence of clay-sandy soils comprising gray-blue clays, dating to the lower middle-sized pliocene. The vineyard stretches for about 32 hectares and is placed in a natural amphitheater with a south-eastern exposure that allows a great solar irradiation throughout the day.

The vineyard is made up of international varieties such as Chardonnay, Sauvignon blanc, Merlot Cabernet, Sauvignon and Petit verdot. The wines of Poggio Lupo derive from sustainable agriculture for a clientele attentive to the environmental issues in the search for products coming from a low impact agriculture and respectful of nature.

We tasted:

Della Luna Merlot 2016

It is a ruby red wine with purple shades. The olfactory bouquet features sweet spicy scents and red cherry and black berries. In the mouth is well balanced and of good persistence.

This wine is aged for 6 months in steel with batonnage on fine lees and for at least 3 months in bottle.

For the food pairing it is ideal with traditional Umbrian dishes like croutons with liver pans, salami, and semi-matured cheeses and with the stuffed cake (Capocollo, sausage, sausage and vegetables).
