Astoria Il Puro Merlot

Astoria Il Puro Merlot has intense aromas of red berries and spice that give into a full and generous palate with supple structure. The finish is long and elegant and the complete wine shows bags of typical plummy, berry, Merlot character. Great presentation too.

Why we like this wine

Fantastic Merlot character at a very affordable price. As usual, Astoria have produced a wine that screams of the grape variety, that is perfectly balanced and is soft and silky to drink. The presentation is top class too!
