Fortelongo is a 100% Merlot and it takes its name from Fortelongo location in the city of San Giorgio di Perlena where it is cultivated.

Merlot is an international vine variety which find in this place a perfect habitat: a sunny hill at 300 m. above sea level west oriented with ample thermal excursion during summer where sunny and hot days are followed by north chilly winds during night time.

Fortelongo vineyard is grown with a low yield per plant (2/3 Kgs): thanks to this and to a soil rich in “togarela”, a volcanic ground, we obtain a full of character Merlot.

A smooth tannins wine, elegant, with a rich bouquet, it is suitable for every occasion.
