From the same vineyard that produced the grapes for Pizzato Merlot 1999 (the wine that raised Merlot to an outstanding position in the Brazilian red winemaking industry), PIZZATO presents this very exclusive Merlot, made only in vintages with excellent growing conditions. The old vineyard low yield and good extraction winemaking result in a wine with very good ageing potential.
Concentus, from Latin, means harmony, concert, agreement. This wine embodies the enological art of mixing different varietals (grapes, wines) with the purpose of producing higher-class wines. It is a blend of Merlot, Tannat and Cabernet Sauvignon, all grown within the Vale dos Vinhedos and used in different percentages in each harvest.
