Le Monde Merlot Trevenezie IGT

Cantina Le Monde is located in Friuli, within the famous Grave del Friuli area that extends from the foothills of the Alps to the Adriatic Sea. The origins of the estate that once owned the farmland can be traced back to the early 1700’s. The name ‘Le Monde’ is taken from the Germanic-Latin word “Mundio”, an ancient Germanic law that ‘protected’ the farmlands of the region. Cantina Le Monde ‘protects’ and safeguards its vineyards, farming in a healthy way, that respects nature and the sustainable future of ancient soils.

Merlot is a dark-blue grape variety whose name comes from the special fondness that the blackbird, Merlo in Italian, has for the grapes. Originating in France and ranking among the most celebrated and wide-spread international grapes in the world it finds very suitable ground for its cultivation in the Veneto and Friuli region.
