This was one of my favourite discoveries of the year. Just 2,500 bottles of this expressive Merlot are produced, that wows with its silky tannins and incredible minerality. Wow.

2017 Merlot, Le Due Terre, Colli Orientali del Friuli
Le Due Terre

Situated in the Colli Orientali, on the far eastern border of Italy (you can see Slovenia from the estate), Flavio and Silvana started making wine at Le Due Terre in 1984. Despite this relatively recent history, they’ve already risen to become one of Friuli’s most prestigious names. The name of the estate literally means ‘the two soils’, and theirs are wines that clearly display their sense of place, working biodynamically and with minimal intervention in the cellar.
