Frequentative gold medal winner of VINARIA wine competition.

Vinification: Incanto Merlot wine was made of the grapes selected from a single vineyard in the Valley of Struma River. At first the vineyard was selected. Then, in the cellar, the grapes were precisely selected on a sorting table – after separating the grapes from the stalks, the remaining stalk parts, the bad and unripe grapes were removed by a machine. From the ripe, good and sweet violet-red grapes, thus selected on the vineyard and in the cellar, this wine was made for 25 days in inox tanks and fermentation under 25-30°С temperature – it is a symphony of colors, tastes and flavors. It matured 12 months in new, special French barrels “barriques” type, made of three types of French oak, where it reached harmony and completeness.

Tasting notes: The color is beautiful, dark red. The multilayer fragrance profile expresses the unique terroir of the valley. The fragrances of forest fruits, ripe prune, chocolate, coffee, coconut and vanilla flow form the wine fragrance into its rich, complete and velvet taste.
