Villa Russiz Merlot 2019


This Merlot is created by Villa Russiz winery located in prestigious Collio area of Friuli. The wine is intense ruby red, with slightly grassy nose and a complex, soft structure, very well-balanced. Over time it becomes elegantly refined and develops a grand bouquet. Pairing suggestions: roasts, fried and stewed red and white meats (in particular rabbit and poultry).
Vinification: when fully ripe, the grapes are hand-picked. They quickly reach the cellar where the fruit is separated from the stalks then left to ferment and therefore macerate for around 15 days. After devatting, the wine is left to age for around 12 – 15 months in small 225 lt. French oak barrels then blended in stainless steel tanks, before being left to age in the bottle for 5 months.

Friuli-Venezia Giulia – Villa Russiz


Villa Russiz was founded on 15 February 1868 with the marriage of Elvine Ritter von Zahony to Theodor de La Tour. Elvine’s dowry, Villa Russiz, turns out to be an area which is still particularly conducive to the cultivation of vines and for producing wines of an exceptional quality.

The wines are part of the Collio controlled nomination of origin: an elegant Sauvignon de La Tour; a Gräfin de La Tour, a refined chardonnay; a Graf de La Tour, a velvety merlot and the Défi de La Tour Cabernet Sauvignon. Les Enfants, the only non-doc exception is a blend of grapes with a name that recalls the estate’s historical commitment within the social sector. In terms of taste, Les Enfants evokes the most characteristic nuances of the Collio territory thanks to its Pinot Banco and Pinot Grigio grapes, and a small percentages of Ribolla and Sauvignon are added to complete its harmony and freshness.
