Italian wine and grape guide : Melara


The Melara grape is grown mainly in the province of Piacenza. There is little historical documentation about its origins. It is known by the name of Merlara and owes its name to the aromatic notes of honey developed by the wine made from its dried grapes. The thickness of the skin makes it particularly fitting for drying. Its berry is white, large and oval with medium-thick skin of yellow-green color. The cluster is medium pyramid, short and medium compact with small pentagonal, five-lobed leaves. The Melara vine gives a deep yellow colored wine. The scent has hints of white flowers, sweet and spicy, muscat notes, spices and honey. The taste is full, balanced and persistent, with a slight aromatic note.
