Grape variety

Merlot
Merlot vinified as a varietal wine, like in overseas or in the Canton Ticino, isn’t very common. Especially as regards the Italian winegrowing. There are only a few exceptions to this rule, e.g. in France. The most expensive wines from Bordeaux are mostly vinified as single-varietal, high quality Merlot, e.g. Château Petrus.

Cabernet
Cabernet Franc, also Cabernet Frank or Alicante Bouschet, is a red grape variety.

It isn’t as spread as the better-known Cabernet Sauvignon, however, undemanding regarding its climatic requirements. Cabernet Franc is an excellent variety in cuvées (blends), being found mainly in France and Italy. Compared with Cabernet Sauvignon its tannin content is lower, and along with a much better harmony it tends to be an early drinkable wine.
