Angoris Merlot Villa Locatelli
Angoris Merlot Villa Locatelli is ruby red with purple highlights.
The nose is delicate, fruity with fresh notes of raspberry, strawberries and red flowers.
To the palate, Angoris Merlot Villa Locatelli is light, harmonious, with a clean finish.
Malolactic fermentation and 5 months aging in oak barrels give to this wine a great drinkability and almost sweet tannins.
Starting from the 1900s, Merlot is one of Friuli’s most important red grape varieties. But, the huge minerality of the Isonzo Valley is key to get such a fresh red wine. Indeed, the drinkability of this Merlot is unique (in particular for a red grape) and it makes the wine very versatile for food matchings.
History of Tenuta di Angoris
Because of his service in the war, the Emperor Ferdinand III gave Locatelli Locatelli 300 fields in an area of Cormòns.
That area – called “Langoris” – was indeed part of the Hapsburg Empire.
From this time on, the quiet woods, green hills and gentle vineyards to the Tenuta di Angoris became a retreat.
And this both for the royal families and the èlite from throughout the Hapsburg Empire.
Villa Locatelli, which still dominates the estate, became a symbol of quality and hospitality.
The wines that came from the estate made their way across the royal courts of Europe.
After 3 centuries the Tenuta di Angoris is now one of the most prestigious Friuli wineries.
Today, the entrepreneurial spirit of another Locatelli family manages the Tenuta.
Claudia Locatelli renewed in the latest years the wines and the looks of the Tenuta di Angoris.
Respect for traditions that date hundreds of years. Respect for the rhythms of life dictated by seasons and by nature. It is not easy to remember these guiding principles in a fast-moving, ever-changing modern world.
Claudia Locatelli and family strive to balance these goals every day. Passion for those products of a land that has given so much for so long. Dedication towards improvement. A marriage between tradition and innovation.
