ABOUT THE WINE: Merlot was first introduced to Alto Adige around 130 years ago along with the other Bordeaux varieties Cabernet Franc and Cabernet Sauvignon. As early as 1890, at a time when the majority of wine was still being sold in barrels, the first bottle of Merlot was being sold by the provincial research center at San Michele. The Brenntal zone borders on the northern ridge of the limestone massif upon which Kurtatsch is enthroned. A tightly meshed network of subterranean springs coming three directions carries mineral salts the mountains under the chalky earth of the plateau. Soils with limestone and porphyry gravel guarantee an optimal, natural drainage. These salts, which the water brings high elevations to the hot valley, determine the Alpine profile of "Brenntal" Merlot. The fresh mineral quality vibrates intensely on the palate, and the gossamer herbal aromas are a bond with the vegetation above the timber line. The limestone massif is like a heat sink that provides the Merlot berries with creamy, soft flesh. The tannins have a rare, fine graininess - they give a southern temperament to the fruit aromas that are typical of the zone (lingonberries, blackberries, cocoa, and green tea). With its long time on the yeast, the opulent "Brenntal" Merlot is enriched with autumnal tones that bring back a hearty echo of mushrooms and truffles.
