Merlot red wine Mil Piedras Merlot 2005 is produced in Mendoza, Aregntina. Mil Piedras is made by the award-winning Benvenuto de la Serna winery located in the Mendoza wine region. This Argentinian Merlot has a deep red color and a bouquet of berries, jam and cinnamon. In the mouth it has a taste of plum and blackberry, with a long smooth tannic finish. Mil Piedras employs the services of Michel Rolland, probably the world's top winemaking consultant. Merlot is Rolland's tour de force grape, and there were only 2,000 cases made of this example from their vineyards in the foothills of the Andes. Mil Piedras Merlot pairs nicely with grilled lamb and red meats.
Benvenuto de la Serna is located in Medoza, Argentina. This winery makes the Mil Piedras wine that has been awarded a Best Buy by known wine critic Robert Parker of Wine Advocate. Their single vineyard estate is situated in the premier wine making district of Vista Flores and Valley de Uco. Considered to be one of the newest stars of the region, this winery has one of Argentina's most experienced winemaking team, including renowed enologist Angel Mendoza (responsible for Trapiche's success). Continuing the tradition of their Genovese grandparents, Silvio Benvenuto and his family built an outstanding winery with state of the art technology. It is located right at the foothills of the magestic Andes Mountains.
