From old vines of Merlot in northern Italy, Skala presents a complex bouquet of dark fruits like blueberries, raisins blended with rustic aromas of a farm, fresh tobacco and chocolate. The entrance is humble and delicate, it opens up and the fruity flavours come out. Long finish with thin but very present tannins.
The Merlot is historically a French grape variety, Merlot was brought to Friuli-Venezia Giulia in 1869 by Count Teodoro de La Tour and soon became the most popular red wine of the territory.
