Wine maker notes
The Merlot vineyards of Barone Fini are 15 to 18 years old. Grape picking is manual; all blemished clusters are discarded. Selected grapes are taken to the excellent, state-of-the-art cooperative winery, where they are put through soft, cold crushing and a long, cold maceration. Juice is then divided into several units; each undergoing temperature controlled fermentation in stainless steel with varying skin concentrations followed by malolactic fermentation. After reaching equilibrium, juice sections are skillfully blended by our winemakers into the final Barone Fini Merlot. One of the top research centers for all aspects of winemaking is Instituto Agrario Provinciale at San Michele allAdige, established in 1847 by Emperor Franz Joseph. Within walking distance of the winery, this superb research facility is widely used by our winemakers to ensure outstanding Merlot quality, vintage after vintage.

Food pairing
Perfect with rich garlic-rosemary slow-roasted pork. Pairs very well with curry, nutmeg, rosemary, or sage-infused dishes.

Producer
In 1497, the two noble Venetian families of Barone and Fini united in marriage and began producing wine in northeastern Italy. Today, the Bonmartini family, direct descendants of the Barone Finis, continue to manage this venerable property producing 60,000 cases per year. In a region first cultivated by the Romans, wine production has continued without interruption for millennia, giving Barone Fini a pedigree and consistency that extend well beyond DOC specifications. Cultivating grapes in as natural a manner as possible, Barone Fini specializes in producing just two varietals: Pinot Grigio and Merlot. All of the fruit for Barone Fini is sourced from old vines and is hand harvested and subjected to rigorous hand sorting to ensure that only the best fruit is used. Vinified in an ultra-modern winery located atop the ruins of an ancient Roman winery, Barone Fini adheres to the highest standards of production, while practicing a strict non-interventionist winemaking regime. Long recognized for producing Pinot Grigio of the highest caliber, Barone Fini Pinot Grigio is crisp and clean, focused on the palate, with subtle fruit flavors, balanced acidity, and a lingering finish (DOC in 1975). Barone Fini Merlot is unoaked and displays the classic fragrances and flavors of the varietal, suggesting plums and blackberries with good intensity, balance, and structure (DOC in 1971).
