You may be surprised to see a common grape variety printed on an Italian wine label, but forget about it and move on to enjoying this well-priced and delicious Merlot.Tenuta Villanova was established in 1499, the grapes that go into this wine are estate grown and it offers very good value.
It is a very fragrant wine with an abundance of sweet plums and black raspberry aromas, cedarbox and violets with dry earth and grapey undertones. The palate is supple, round and spicy. Rich fruit, cocoa and roasted coffee bean flavours dominate followed by hints of tobacco and plenty of spice which lingers across the finish.
Very tasty - a real crowd pleaser!
Good First Impressions
