Description

Grapes picked for the Principi di Butera Merlot wine were picked from the districts of Butera and Riesi in the Province of Caltanissetta. The must fermented for 2 weeks in vertical vinification tanks using the submerged cap system at a controlled temperature of 30°C (86°F). The wine matured for 12 months, 50% in 350-liter (92 gallon) tonneaux and 50% in 60 hectoliter (1,320 gallon) oak barrels, followed by a further period of bottle ageing.

Tasting Notes

  • Nose Nose
    A rich bouquet, with scents of red berry fruits, blackcurrants and blackberries, perfectly melded with attractive vanilla notes.
  • Palate
    Soft yet well-structured, with hints of wild berry fruits (especially raspberries and blackberries) and spices. A very long finish.
  • Appearance Appearance
    Deep garnet red.

Sommelier Review

“Another edition from this fantastic winemaker. Being from a more hot climate region this merlot shows the latest achievement in vineyards around Etna. Here, full-bodied, mineral volcanic wines are created. The Merlot is elegant, soft with inviting aromas of dark berries. On the palate, typical cherry fruit with a soft harmoniously integrated acidity.”
