Lago di Corbara DOC Merlot

De Coronis


De Coronis

De Coronis is made exclusively from Merlot grapes harvested in the plot of land known in the ancient records as Villa de Coronis, from which the wine takes its name. The vineyard, with its green curving vines and its century-old oak trees, sets a poetic stage for one of the estate’s most stunning views.

This wine is made only after an excellent harvest and bottles are produced in a very limited number.

Production areaHilly slopes at 320 m above sea level, with south/southwesterly exposure.
