In the early 2000s Edoardo Miroglio, a well-known Italian textile and wine producer, found the perfect soil and climatic conditions to produce quality wines in the Thracian region. With the idea of combining Italian know-how in the development of vineyards and oenology with this terroir, he made his first vintage in 2005.
Having scored 90pts in Decanter magazine, this little Merlot has not only convinced us at Philglas. With plenty of dark plums, ripe blackcurrant and bramble, vanilla and baking spice notes from oak and a hint of cedar and tobacco, with a faint hint of the lovely balancing herbaceous aroma that comes with good Merlot - and a nice amount of freshness. As it opens it gets a bit deeper and fleshes out, suggesting it will go a couple of years in the wine rack, no problem, and even improve. This is brilliant value for the amount of wine you get, must try!
