This unmixed Merlot is so interesting, complex and attractive that it will surely make people who look for those characteristics fall in love with this wine.
It is refined for about 18 months in small oak barrels. Filius is a wine which should be served with rich and well-seasoned dishes, but it matches equally well with rich and matured cheeses.
Best served at 18°C in large glasses in order to fully appreciate the complexity of its bouquet.
