Tasting Note

Immediate bilberry notes followed by a floral bouquet, vanilla and a toasty finish on the nose. The palate shows a lovely texture and velvety richness in the mouth, and is well supported by acidity and creamy, elegant tannins. Very persistent with a fresh and pleasant length.

Online exclusive: this wine is available to buy on our website, and not in our Bath shop. If you wish to collect from our shop, simply order online and select the ‘free collection’ option at the checkout. Your wine will be available for you to collect within three business days.

Winemaking

Sito dell’Ulmo is a single-variety Merlot and from a single vineyard. Years of experience have helped us identify in the vineyards of Ulmo, planted in 1987 on the banks of Lake Arancio, the ideal location for the cultivation of this ancient French variety. Altitude is 195 metres above sea level and vines are planted with a density of 3,800 per hectare and trained using the Guyot system.

Harvested at the end of August, the grapes were destemmed and crushed before spending 14 days macerating on the skins in stainless steel fermenters. After racking, the wine was aged for 12 months in Allier oak barrels.

Food Recommendation

Game, roast beef and matured cheeses all partner this wine. Sicilian cooking such as roast lamb, beef and potato stew, rabbit in red wine, boiled beef, stuffed meat roll. Even Maiorchino, a traditional Sicilian cheese.
