Alto Adige Merlot Cabernet DOC 2017

About this wine

In our Cuvée SOMA (ancient Greek for body), we have united the warmest vineyards from the lowermost slopes of Cantina Kurtatsch. The vineyard lots on sandy, loamy soil are ideal for growing noble Bordeaux varieties because of the geographic location of the village in the southernmost part of Alto Adige.

These varieties were planted in Kurtatsch already at the beginning of the 20th century. In SOMA, Merlot, with its fruitiness, sets the pace, while Cabernet franc und Cabernet sauvignon lend it spiciness, elegance and depth. In the nose, aromas of cherries, blackberries and prunes dominate. On the palate, the presence of tannins give the round body additional balance and form the basis for longer bottle ageing.
SOMA: the sensuous one.
