La Cantina Pizzolato has been an organic estate since 1991. Winemaker Settimo Pizzolato is the latest of five generations of Pizzolati who have made wine in this scenic part of north eastern Italy. With 50 hectares of his own and contracts for grapes from another 50 belonging to long-term neighbouring organic growers, Settimo runs a significant operation which is improving in quality and focus exponentially.
Regional Information
The estate benefits from the Veneto region's plentiful rainfall (average of 1200-1400mm annually) and a continental climate with cold winters and warm, humid summers. The vines are planted on pebbly soil which allows good drainage. The vineyard is farmed organically and grapes are hand harvested and carefully selected.
Current Vintage
Vinification Details
Classic red wine vinification without the addition of SO2. The grapes are hand harvested and fermentation is activated using selected yeasts. This occurs in stainless steel at a temperature of 25C for one week. The wine is then filtered and stored in temperature-controlled tanks prior to bottling.

A good example of you get what you pay for. Dangerously smooth! I get what some have said about the seal. My bottle popped a little when opening, but luckily wine not spoilt. I bought with 25% off will probably buy 6 when same offer on.

Nice wine, shame about the poor quality seal

This is the second time I have had to claim a refund on this wine as it has leaked in my wine rack. There is something going wrong. One bottle that hasn't leaked looked dented around the seal. I would have given this wine 5 stars if it wasn't for the problems I have encountered. I won't be buying again as it's not worth the bother.

Lovely and Smooth

This is a repeat purchase in our household. It has a lovely rich fruity flavour, with no harsh aftertaste. Very smooth and easy to drink as an accompaniment to a meal or on its own. Fantastic that it is both organic and has no added sulphites which is probably why I have never had a headache after drinking this wine. I highly recommend.

Easy drinking

Enjoyed this and love the sulphite status, but just can't justify buying it regularly because of the price point.

Five Star Organic Merlot

This Merlot is smooth and mellow, medium bodied, and very enjoyable to drink either on its own or alongside a meal. It is pricey for a vino da tavola, or table wine, but I would rather drink less often and drink high quality wine than quaff quantities of headache inducing plonk. It’s worth noting that, being a natural product and made without the addition of sulphur, it needs to be aerated at room temperature for twenty or so minutes. Open the bottle and let it breathe whilst you cook. Drunk straight away upon opening, it will taste quite sharp, especially if you usally drink chemically adulterated wine. This might well explain the couple of poor reviews stating that the wine was acidic. A little patience and you’ll be rewarded with a very pleasant glass, or two, and no headache the following day. I’m happy that Ocado stock this Merlot as it’s about the only red of its quality that I can still afford to buy; it really cheers up a dull wintery weekend.

I didn\x27t like it

I know it's not a great review - I'm writing it for my own benefit so I know not to order it again as I didn't like it - but I am not a huge red wine drinker so others might like it.
