Fattoria Montecchio’s 2015 ‘La Papessa’ is comprised of 100% Merlot and takes its name from La Papessa, one of the region’s oldest farm complexes that is located in the heart of the Montecchio estate. La Papessa is cited in many historical sources dating back to the 1500’s and it is thought to have been named after an influential countrywoman who lived there. This wine is a fitting tribute, balancing power and elegance with exceptional consistency. The aromas are fruity with persistent notes of blackberry and plum, and hints of spice, while the palate shows excellent structure and balance and soft, harmonious tannins. Enjoy!
