Fausto Merlot 2016

£15.00 £12.95

A fine, savoury style of oaked Merlot from Pizzato, one of Brazil’s oldest family wineries. Highly recommended!


ABV: 13%

APPEARANCE:  Deep garnet red

AROMAS: Ripe red berry fruits with hint of spice and leather from French barrel ageing

TASTE:  Lovely deep concentration of damson and plum fruit with traces of licorice or spice. Lightly oaked, shows some earthy and savoury notes too. Dry with smooth, rounded tannins, wine will benefit from opening in advance

FOOD PAIRING: Try with BBQ meats, especially beef, lamb or pork, also pasta ragú, mildly spiced dishes or well flavoured cheese

OVERALL:  Has matured beautifully, is and will continue to drink very well. Nominally the winery’s second range, there is nothing second rate about this Fausto-branded Merlot from winemaker Flavio Pizzato!
