San Gimignano DOC Merlot Arrigo


Dedicated to my father Arrigo Fenzi, to his ability of excelling in such a natural way, in all situations and to his kindness 

We have been producing Arrigo Melot since 2007, the year where we managed to tame a peculiar yet fantastic vintage of Merlot that we harvest last, in october.

They say about us

SKU: PR119 Categories: ,



Terrerosse vineyard with mixed clay soil and Pliocene sands.

Growing system: spurred cordon.



Careful handpicking of the best grapes in the vineyard, that are leter destemmed and pressed. The grapes macerate for 24 to 30 days at a temperature not exceeding 30 ° C in concrete tancs. Then the must undergoes the spontaneous malolactic maturation and fermentation in 2nd and 3rd passage tonneaux barrels. Here it remains for 24 months in contact with the yeasts which are periodically placed in suspension (batonnages). Following the natural stabilization and after organoleptic control, we assembly the most suitable wine components from the various barrels. We then proceed with a light filtration before bottling the wine, where we leave it to age in the bottle for at least 6 months.
