Alex Della Vecchia, Grinton M&M Rosso 2021
Our favourite type of light red blends both white and red grapes together, the result is all the aromatics of white grapes blended with the fine tannins and the berries of red grapes. This is a heady mix of Moscato, that most aromatic grape and plummy merlot. Bang for the buck it is!
This light, bright and perfumed red wine comes from a fifty-year-old vineyard planted over clay and limestone in the Colli Euganei, where Moscato Giallo and Merlot mingle the old-fashioned way. Paying respect to the field blends of old, the grapes are picked together, and the Moscato is destemmed, the Merlot kept as whole bunches, and the two fermented on skins for a week before being pressed to cuve until the following March. Bottled young and brimming with energy, this captures all spring optimism, with red berries and wildflowers piling on the charm.
