Alto Adige Merlot Cabernet DOC 2022

About this wine

The name of the wine village of Kurtatsch comes from the Latin term "Curtis" (higher-lying farm). Bordeaux varieties were planted in Kurtatsch already around 1900.

The geographic location of Kurtatsch in the south of Alto Adige is considered optimal for the heat-loving Merlot, Cabernet franc and Cabernet sauvignon grapes. Merlot gives the wine body and soft tannins. The peppery spice comes from Cabernet franc, and Cabernet sauvignon contributes its blackcurrants. The Cantina Kurtatsch Cuvée CURTIS unites these varieties in a wine with fullness and elegance. Curtis, the Mediterranean-Alpine Bordeaux blend.
