Merlot Campo Camino

Doc Lison Pramaggiore

In vineyard

A single-varietal Merlot that expresses both a strong varietal identity and a marked territoriality. Produced from a selection of our best clones, whose production loads are intensely reduced in order to achieve the perfect phenolic maturity. The absolute priority is to achieve a perfect grape at the time of harvesting since this condition is a prerequisite for lengthy skin maceration, during which the colourants, flavourings and tannins will pass from the skins and pips to the wine in order to create its structure.

In cellar

Maceration of the grapes lasts for 20-22 days. At the end of this stage malolactic fermentation takes place, which provides roundness and softness to balance the typical fragrances of Merlot. Ageing takes place in 30 hl barrels for 12 months and concludes with a further 4 months of ageing in bottles.

In tasting

Campo Camino is a single-varietal Merlot with an intense red colour and purple hues, a broad and interesting scent to balance its fruity and spicy hints. On the palate, it is velvety, full-bodied and harmonious, with excellent structure.

Plus

    The Bosco del Merlo red wine most popular abroad. Gold Medal at the Concours Mondial du Merlot di Lugano (Switzerland). Splendidly drinkable, as it has the advantage of being rich and moderately tannic.

What does Campo Camino mean?

It is the name of the vineyard; evoking the high chimney of the old brick furnace that is located outside its boundaries.

Pairings

Great with braised or roasted red meat, with grilled meat and middle-aged cheeses or with frico (a frulian dish made of cheese, potatoes and onions cooked together). Especially good with alpine cheese.
