In the later half of the 1800’s, the De Stefani family first created wines of the utmost quality, and this tradition continues today under the experience of the family’s 4th generation winemaker, Alessandro. In Refrontolo, a small hilly village in between the two famous Prosecco towns of Conegliano and Valdobbiadene, the family began, and it has recently accrued two other vineyards to combine for 40 hectares of total estate. In 1971, Tiziano De Stefani (Alessandro’s father), moved his family to the Fossalta di Piave where they could grow many different grapes on the clay soils of the old river plain, while retaining their esteemed Glera vineyards for Prosecco production. With a complete dedication to as natural production as possible, the estate is organically farmed, they only rely on naturally occurring yeasts as well as never adding sulfur during vinification (since 2009), all while focusing on many varietals that they have found to create incredible results in their unique terrain. The Redentore label comes from the younger vines of the estate that will someday be destined to carry the De Stefani flagship label. Redentore Merlot is made from grapes that will someday go into the estate’s Plavis Merlot, as when Tiziano De Stefani found the right area in Veneto to make wines like those in Pomerol France, his goal was to make world-class Merlot. The grapes go into stainless steel for alcoholic fermentation with natural yeasts, and are then moved to French barrique for a years aging and malolactic fermentation. A beautiful and clean fruit presence is common in the wines from Redentore, and this wine is such a vibrant and expressive example, with round and soft fruit, spice, a touch of vanilla, and wonderful balanced acidity. A beautiful representation of the Merlot variety.
