It is 100% obtained from Merlot grape, a vine coming from Bordeaux area, not yet introduced in Collio at the time of the Oenological Congress of 1891, therefore the experts of that time thought it was “useful to experiment the cultivation of Merlot in our province as well”. Marzotto, in his “Ampelografia del Friuli” (Ampelography of Friuli) in 1923, wrote that this grape “gives wine of the highest quality, ready for consumption, fragrant”.
