Delicata Winemaker wins two golds at Emozioni dal Mondo Merlot e Cabernet Insieme

Updated on

Maltese Emmanuel Delicata Winemaker has won two gold medals at the 2019 Emozioni dal Mondo Merlot e Cabernet Insieme wine competition in Bergamo, for its 2017 vintage of Gran Cavalier Merlot and Cabernet Sauvignon—both DOK Malta Superiors—, according to a press statement sent to Business Malta.

The Gran Cavalier Merlot garnet red wine is described as full-bodied and packed with fruit flavours, with dusty and faintly savoury Maltese hallmark to it.

The barrique-matured and robust Malta-grown Cabernet Sauvignon is often described as a sweet and fruity nose and a rich palate filled with light black fruits and true classical varietal character. In addition to a gold medal, Cabernet Sauvignon also won the press prize.
