Merlot – Sassoregale

It’s a dark shadowy night, no one in the street but the wind. You are alone at home, you try to sleep but something’s on your mind. You feel something approaching, the doors slides open. You want to open yours eyes but you can’t. You hear an animal, you think it’s an owl, it might an owl…….


Don’t worry, it was just a movie, mystery, suspense movie. And there was a perfect companion for it, this beguiling Merlot.

Let me start saying the label was certainly the detail that lured us to get it, just like the movie, it felt mysterious. Upon opening it, we found out that it was absolutely delicious, however a little too strong for a merlot. We tried chilling it, but we weren’t too careful and it became too chilled. It was tasteless! So we had to wait until it got warmer.

By this time, the movie was more than half way. But the wait was worthy, it turned in to a fine wine that I truly recommend but be prepared for a merlot with character.

Cuvée Pinot – Santa Margherita

Unexpected Wine Sharing – Part 1/2

Last Thursday was the birthday of this amazing French guy. It was not specifically a wine party, but my friends and I all thought it would be a good idea to start the night with something smoother.

We ended up with three different white wines. Obikwa Moscato, from South Africa, Frontera Moscato, from Chile, and something very peculiar which I had not heard or tasted before, Santa Margherita Cuvée Pinot from Italy.

Up until that day, I thought that I could only like Moscatos, since I had tried Sauvignon Blanc and Rieslings but I don’t think I have found one to fancy.

Perhaps it was the mixture of the two different types of grapes, Pinot Grigio and Pinot Bianco, or maybe its elegance, but this wine climb up to one of my favorites. It had a soft light color and it was definitely less sweet that the moscatos, butit felt as it was a more serious wine. Still rather versatile, as I am sure It can match many different food.

The smell: timid but elegant. Intriguing, it makes you feel curious.

Sweetness: 3.6/5

Sourness: 3.4/5

Fruitiness: 4.1/5

Style: Light – Medium
