Marco Merli is a small garagista new to the scene in the garden of Italy, Umbria just outside of Perugia in a town called Casa del Diavolo, 'The House of The Devil'. The lore goes something like this: He aspired to use his own vines on his estate but un-satisfied with the results, he shared his displeasure with the neighbors. They offered their high altitude old-vine options in the surrounding hills, which they couldn't really be bothered with themselves. He vinifies in re-conditioned small cement tanks traditionally used for home production. But he has dozens of them so he can track each individual parcel.
