About the Wine
The name "SUN GODDESS" holds a special place in the heart of this wine. It encapsulates powerful childhood memories of warmth, energy, and a deep connection with the sun. Mary J. Blige, earned this affectionate title, and it serves as the perfect moniker for a wine that radiates nature's essence and embodies her unique style, as well as that of Fantinel.
Mary J. Blige is not just a global superstar; she's a powerhouse of inspiration, transformation, and empowerment. With a string of accolades that include Grammy Awards, Academy Award nominations, and a BET Lifetime Achievement award, she's a true icon. Her passion for wine and the culture it represents has led her to the world of wine.
As Mary J. Blige herself puts it, "Wine is culture. Wine is community. Wine is lifestyle. Wine is emotion." These words reflect the profound connection between her and the world of wine. Her fondness for Pinot Grigio brought her to the heart of Friuli Venezia Giulia, where she crossed paths with Marco Fantinel, the visionary owner of Fantinel Winery.
Fantinel Winery has become a testament to the art of Friulian winemaking. It began as a humble family endeavor and has blossomed into an internationally prestigious winery. Today, it is guided by Marco and Stefano Fantinel, representing the third generation of winemakers. Their commitment to crafting exceptional wines has earned them a well-deserved place on the global stage.
The 2017 Sun Goddess Merlot Friuli-Venezia Giulia harmoniously blends the artistry of Fantinel with the passion and vision of Mary J. Blige. Its rich, velvety texture, and vibrant fruit flavors make it a wine to savor and celebrate. Experience the warmth of the sun in every sip and become a part of the Sun Goddess legacy.
Tasting Notes: 100% Merlot. A rich and powerful aroma that harmoniously combines intense red berries and delicate spicy notes. Full-bodied, mineral, pleasantly tannic and elegantly velvety. A flavorful and very long-lasting red wine
