2020 Elicio Grenache Merlot

The "Elicio" wines ("evokes", "recalls", "remembers" in Latin) were created in the early 2000s, in memory of happy days spent in the heart of Provence, between Ventoux and Luberon.

Tasting Notes

Colour

The wine has a lovely ruby-red color with bluish tints.

Nose

The expressive nose reveals notes of red and black fruit jam, licorice and sweet pepper.

Palate

Earthy, juicy, luscious fruit - blackberry & blueberry. A bold mouthfeel coats the entire palate and a low acid leaves balanced tannins to slowly melt away.

2020 Elicio Grenache Merlot 

The Region

Elicio Red Blend hails from the southern Rhône Valley. This region has a history of delivering excellence in a bottle. Elicio builds on this reputation by bringing you a smooth Grenache and Merlot red blend. However, a blend of Grenache and Merlot is rarely seen in the wine world, which makes this bottle unique. But don’t be scared, this uncommon combination has been blended into a wine that pairs deliciously with the warm summer weather.

This wine is an excellent pair with the early warmth of the year — the subtle sun rays on pale, wintered skin. This bottle is bold, packing a punch of earthiness and juicy, dripping fruit. With a bold mouthfeel, it really coats the entire palate sliding down the sides and leaving a dusty dry feeling. The acid is low and it leaves the tannins to slowly melt away on your palate.
