    Unser Hochzeitswein 2003 und immer noch bestes Preis-Leistungsverhältnis für einen Tessiner Merlot, auch wenn der Wein nicht mehr bei Tamborini gekeltert wird. Fruchtiger, fein strukturierter Merlot mit Abgang. Ideal zu Tessiner Küche, von Coniglio über Polenta bis zu Formaggini. Auch als Dessert immer ein Genuss.

    Guter Alltagswein - Kein Luxuswein, dafür aber ein Werktagswein.
