Folonari Merlot

Folonari Merlot 750ml   
Sku: 1021554

3 day lead-time required to confirm availability Why?

This 100% Merlot is aged in a combination of stainless steel tank and American oak barrels. Stainless steel aging helps the wine retain it’s fresh, fruit driven character, while the oak softens the wine and adds spicy, vanilla notes. The wine is bright red in color with a bouquet of blackberry and raspberry followed by a soft, balanced finish.
