Merlot wines have increased in popularity in recent years with
production of both blended wines as well as 100 percent Merlot
wines. This varietal is the fifth most widely planted grape variety in Italy. While Tuscany, where Merlot is used liberally in the production of Super-Tuscan wines, has received the most attention, more Merlot is actually grown in the Alto Adige, and Veneto regions in northeastern Italy. Some Merlot is also planted in Umbria, Campania, and Sicily.
