Lison Pramaggiore, Veneto, Italy
Tenuta Mosole is situated in the easternmost part of the province of Venice, near the border with Friuli. It is located off the famous wine road, "Strada dei Vini". Powerful, fine, noble, like its variety Merlot, Ad Nonam pays tribute to the territory. It is the ninth milestone, between the cities of Oderzo (Opitergium) and Concordia Sagittaria (Julia Concordia), that gave life to Annone Veneto and celebrates a location used by the Romans for the changing of their horses. Three of Mosole's 30 hectares of vines are dedicated to the production of Merlot Ad Nonam, which comes from the oldest blocks, vinified separately.
What makes Merlot Ad Nonam a unique wine is the very rich clay soil in which Merlot finds its maximum expression (just think of Pomerol). The result is a wine that is powerful, with velvety tannins, expressive aromas and the complexity of great wine. It has well framed tannins on a smooth structure with a long, pleasing finish.
Enjoy Mosole Merlot Ad Nonam over the next 8-10 years with roast beef, pastas with meat sauces, rich vegetarian dishes and aged cheeses.
