XV Merlot

South of Magrè lies the site called “15th ”. Its soils are characterized by deposits from the Rio Favogna and the River Adige and have largely been planted with Merlot vines since 1957. For us, these old vines are a guarantee of harmonious, balanced wines. Thanks to the Ora, a warm wind from Lake Garda, the site has excellent ventilation, which gives the wine a delicate structure and finesse.
