Up unitl 2016 Miani vinified 2 single vineyard merlots Buri and Filip.In 2016 Enzo decided to process the grapes into a single Merlot bottling of two top vineyards masterfully combined. Both vineyards have 40 year old vines and the wine is aged in new oak and old oak but remains pure with the enticing berry and plum expression too rarely seen in Merlot from around the world and manages to avoid underripeness even in cooler vintages.
The benefit to the wine from blending the two parcels was in balancing the plumpness of the Filip with the power and structure of the Buri. On the nose plum, raspberry jam and pomegranate. On the palate juicy fruit, soft tannins and remarkable depth and length.
