Elena Walch Merlot Riserva Vigna Kastelaz 2015
A fresh, bright ruby red characterizes the Merlot Riserva Vigna “Kastelaz”. The wine is intense and pure in the nose, with fruity notes of sour cherries and plums, with hints of caramel and fine roasted aromas. Supple velvety tannins, a soft, round texture, an important, spicy body, fruity concentration and filigree elegance fill the palate.
