Product Description

Do you really need to spend $2,400 for a bottle of Petrus to enjoy an outstanding merlot? We think NOT!


While “grocery store” merlots have given this varietal a bad name, fine versions of merlot are truly an outstanding wine.


Sturino Trotta Merlot is 100% merlot, hand-picked and sorted, and patiently aged in French Oak for almost 3 years – yes, 3 years!  Who other than Sturino Trotta takes that kind of time?!


This Merlot has deep and rich color.  It boasts a wonderful bouquet of dark berries, dried cherry, and hints of earth, spice and mocha.  This is a full flavor wine with great intensity, yet soft tannins and a distinct freshness.


In blind tastings around the country, Sturino Trotta 2008 Merlot was preferred over these other fine Merlots: Duckhorn, Cakebread and Pahlmeyer.  (We did not spend the $2,400 to try the Petrus.)  You be the judge – try it yourself.
