Quattromani Merlot del Ticino DOC
This merlot will hold its own to any merlot in the world. The Ticino merlots have won many international wine competitions. Unfortunatly 40% of the wines from this area stay within the Canton, 55% get shipped throughout Switzerland and only 5% get exported thoughout Europe and to the US. THIS IS A MUST BUY IF YOU CAN FIND IT. It retails in Switzerland for about 55 Swiss Francs ($55).
Don't mistake this for the Italian Quattro Mani Montepulciano d'Abruzzo that retails for about $10-$11.
