After about three or four days of maceration, the alcoholic fermentation takes place through indigenous yeasts. This process lasts between seven to eight days. Finallly the racking and, after decanting two or three times the Rosso cà del Merlo reposes until the end of February.

In the world of Italian wines there are very few estates and even fewer personalities whose influence can truly be considered as epochal. Giuseppe Quintarelli is undoubtedly classed as one of the top auteurs of post war Italian fine wine. Bepi, as he was known, spent over sixty years - up until his sad passing in 2012 - of skill, care, patience and uncompromising attention to detail creating the legendary wines of the estate, characteristically modern yet tied to the family’s home and history.
