Merlot Le Due Terre DOC 2012


Le Due Terre is a small winery in Friuli Venezia Giulia, in the Prepotto area, on the border with Slovenia. It was founded in 1984 by the spouses Silvana Forte and Flavio Basilicata who, after a long experience in other wineries, buy a farmhouse with four hectares of vineyards and begin to cultivate their dream. The name of the cellar derives from the particularity of the land on which it is placed: one side is made of marl and the other is composed of red soil. Silvana and Flavio lead the vineyard and the cellar with the minimum human intervention. This Merlot comes from vineyards of about 4 hectares of the Prepotto area, in Friuli Venezia Giulia, on the border with Slovenia. The land is conducted according to non-interventional principles and the vinifications are made with natural criteria. The aging is carried out for 22 months in barriques.
