Merlot was originally named as such in the Nineteenth Century: its sweet and juicy berries were very much appreciated by the blackbirds (Merle in French) in the countryside. It is a soft and eclectic wine that has found one of its favourite terroir in the Friuli Grave area; so much so that a road along the river Isonzo has been dedicated to it.
