Merlot IGT ‘Decima Aurea’, Tenuta Santa Maria

100% Merlot, from a selection of three clones grown at high-density, sourced from a single vineyard planted in 1991 in the Illasi Valley, 16km east of Verona.  The vines are Cordon-trained and planted at a density of 9500 vines per hectare.  The first harvest takes place in late September, with the grapes being left to dry naturally for 1 month, followed by a second harvest of very ripe grapes in the first half of October. The two harvests are left to ferment and macerate separately. The wine is then blended and aged in barrique for 14 months prior to bottling.
