A still white wine from the Ticino region of Switzerland.

Bright, elegant and complex. Citrus fruits, white flowers, vanilla.

Tasting Notes

The 2015 Bianco Rovere from Brivio is elegant, complex and intense.

The nose shows delicate flower nuances, notes of exotic and citrus fruits. I also find hints of vanilla and some herbaceous nuances.

On the palate the texture is smooth and rich. This bottle is fruity and fresh and has a good structure.

Mineral and persistent at the finish. Very good balance.

Dark blue-colored variety of wine-making grape

Merlot is a dark blue–colored wine grape variety that can be used to produce both blending and varietal wines. Merlot is thought to be a diminutive of merle, the French word for a blackbird, which is most likely a reference to the grape’s color. Merlot is a common grape for blending with the sterner, later-ripening Cabernet Sauvignon, which appears to be higher in tannin, due to its softness and “fleshiness” combined with its earlier ripening.
