The 2016 Cont’Ugo is an intense ruby red in color. The nose is characterized by notes of cherries and raspberries along with aromas of sweet spices and Mediterranean brush. The palate is strikingly supple in texture with a lengthy finish and great balance.

Wine Analysis

100% Merlot
After 8 months of oak aging the wine was blended and put back into oak barrels for an additional 4 months. The wine was bottled aged for another 6 months before release.
Fermentation and maceration took place in stainless steel tanks for about 25 days during which temperatures were carefully controlled to accommodate the ripeness of different lots.
The separate lots then went into oak barrels, 30% new, for aging where malolactic fermentation also occurred.
