Italy DOC Venezia Merlot – Settimo Podere – VEGAN [V]
100% Merlot. Pleasant floral notes of violet, distinctly fruity with aromas of blackberry. A delicate nuance of pepper. Dry, full-bodied, tannic and fruity.
Cantina Pizzolato, located in the Veneto region, produces Italy’s
number-one selling Italian organic wines. The organic wine estate covers
an area of 58 hectares and it also collaborates with neighboring
producers contributing an additional 48 hectares of organically grown
grapes.The involvement in Organic farming began in 1981, when Settimo
Pizzolato joined the company alongside his father Gino. He progressively
undertook production of Italian organic wines, among the first wine
producers in Italy to do so. Thanks to his desire to maintain the
balance of the countryside ecosystem and a commitment to fine organic
wine production, in 1991 Settimo was able to obtain the official USDA
organic certification. The resulting organic wines have a true taste of
place, embodying the terroir on which they were born and a sense of the
family’s commitment to live and farm in harmony with nature.
