Merlot

Native to the Bordeaux region, its name refers to Merle, the French word for blackbird because of its color. Particularly rich in anthocyanins, Merlot has a high color intensity, resulting in dark, dense wines with a deep purple-red color. In warmer regions, it offers an aromatic palette marked by notes of black and red fruit, and develops aromas of plum, black cherry and blackberry. With age, wines made from Merlot develop aromas of jam, licorice and undergrowth. This variety is often blended with Cabernet Sauvignon or Cabernet Franc. Merlot is grown all over the world and is one of the best-known grape varieties.
