A red table wine, still capable of enthralling and bewitching, because it is the fruit of Marco Merli’s flair and passion. “000172021” is a blend of red grapes from Marco Merli’s 7 hectares of vineyards, located at altitudes between 280 and 400 meters above sea level and where vines capable of reaching up to 60 years of age are included.
Grapes are harvested strictly by hand, and maceration of the grapes takes place both in concrete and steel tanks and in PVC tanks. Aging, on the other hand, takes place exclusively in steel and cement. The advanced age of the vines and the absence of wine filtration and clarification allow all the natural essences of the Altotiberini hills to be revealed in the glass.
A wine that could be defined with a thousand adjectives: velvety, spicy, pungent, lively and harmonious at the same time.
On tasting it reveals its iron aromas, accompanied by fruity aromas of blackberry and blueberry.
A good everyday wine to have in your cellar at all times, you can enjoy it with a simple but satisfying board of cured meats and cheeses if you don’t feel like cooking, or with a plate of meal topped with a meat sauce if you feel like turning on the stove.
INGREDIENTS AND BENEFITS
A glass of wine a day keeps the doctor away!
It is clear that wine is not harmful to our bodies, as a substance given to us by nature in the form of fruit from which man over the centuries has managed to obtain this heavenly beverage. We can guarantee that our winemakers work by following ancient methods, supported by the aid of contemporary technologies: this is why we feel confident in affirming that Italian wine, the real one, is a panacea for body and mind.
The presence of polyphenols in wine (to a lesser extent in white wines and in large quantities in reds, especially when aged) provides constant protection against cellular oxidation, the main culprit of aging and cellular deterioration.
Perhaps even more obvious and important, however, are the psychological benefits that a good glass of Italian wine can give you: the lightheartedness it gives to an evening with friends, the romance it helps to create in a couple’s dinner, the passion it is able to unleash in anyone lucky enough to taste its essences.
We receive your order, prepare it and ship it in 24/36 hours.
We are aware that excellent products need excellent packaging and at the same time we cannot risk damaging in any way the precious Italian culinary jewels: for this reason our warehouse is equipped with temperature and lighting ideal for food preservation and the most delicate ones (cheeses, cold cuts and craft beers) are stored inside cold rooms. During shipping, on the other hand, each product is protected with the packaging most appropriate to its characteristics.
Cheeses and cured meats, which despite being aged require special care, travel accompanied by a special slow-release gel ice inside isothermal bags: in this way freshness is preserved until the goods arrive at your home.
For our craft beers, which are unpasteurized and therefore more sensitive to high temperatures than normal, we use special isothermal bubble wrap, which can ensure that the accumulated cold is maintained for the shipping time while protecting the bottles from shocks.
To secure the precious bottles of Italian wine, we have equipped ourselves with special inflatable bags, designed solely for the purpose of immobilizing and protecting this product inside the box.
For jars containing a thousand Italian goodnesses, we use special protective bubble wrap liners.
