De Coronis

Lago di Corbara DOC Merlot

“…It is a sensitive rarity that gives gustatory and tactile sensations of true persuasive taste. […] Among the absolute best reds of the year, chapeau.”
Luca Maroni
Annuario dei migliori vini italiani 2021

Type of soil

The vines grow on a gentle hillslope, at 320 m above sea level, facing south/southwest. This excellent location allows great ventilation and maximum exposure to the sun, for a slow and balanced ripening of the grapes. The soil, once a seabed in the Pliocene era, is medium-textured and rich in sand and seashells, which contributes to the wine’s distinct minerality.

Grape Variety

The excellent grapes used to brew this wine are 100% Merlot, harvested in the plot of land known in the ancient records as “Villa de Coronis,” from which the wine takes its name.

Vinification

The grapes are vinified in stainless steel vats, at a controlled temperature ranging between 25° and 28°C. The maceration phase, during which the juice is kept in contact with the grape skins, lasts 15 to 18 days. Following, the wine is moved to 500-liter French oak barrels, where it is kept to evolve for ‌16 months. After a final bottle-aging process of 7 to 9 months, the wine is ready to be enjoyed.

Sensory Evaluation

The colour is deep red, and the nose speaks of violets, tobacco, dark-fleshed fruits, and sweet liquorice. The rich taste, with its soft enveloping tannins, carries hints of plum, black cherry, and dark spices. Overall round and balanced, with a lingering aftertaste.

Food pairing

This wine is a heavenly match with juicy flavours, especially wild boar stew, game meat, and aged cheese.
