Anna-Barbara von der Crone & Paolo Visini - A Valais Wine Producer
Tinello, 2012, Cantina Kopp von der Crone Visini, Barbengo, Ticino, 0.75l.
One of the most well loved regions of Swiss wine is the Italian-Swiss area of Ticino. Here, the dialect is Italian, the colors are more vivid, the sun shines brightly and the wine is Merlot. Merlot has found a wonderful home in Ticino, where the Merlot thrives in the limestone soil.
In the last few years, wine critics have started to realize the potential of Swiss wines, Robert Parker’s David Schildknecht named the wine of our Swiss Premium Box one of his favorites of 2012. This 100% merlot has an amazing silky texture and is full of juicy fig, violet, damson plum, ripe blackberry and a hint of vanilla tobacco. Let it breathe for about 30 minutes for maximum deliciousness.
