Toiano Merlot di Streda Belvedere Toscana Rosso IGP(igt)
An unusual wine for a place like Tuscany, a pure Merlot that thanks to the particular microclimate takes on very intense and particular aromas and flavors: an excellence!
It is a long-lived wine that is drunk well even after many years of aging in bottle, if stored properly.
It has a beautiful ruby red color with purple reflections and aromas of black fruits and undergrowth with light hints of vanilla. The taste is balanced, with soft tannins and a rich aftertaste. Excellent pairing with fresh cheeses and first courses.
