Hi all. I’m getting ready to do a first racking of Nebbiolo grapes into a five gallon carboy. If the wine doesn’t come to the neck, I’ll need to top it off, but with what? Has anyone topped off Nebbiolo with Merlot, or Cabernet, maybe there is a better idea?

I started with 6gallons of juice, so I’m not using my 6 gallon carboy to age. I figure I’ll fill the 5 gal with some likely some extra in a 1/2 gallon, but I’m sure I’ll need some topping, somewhere..

thanks for any ideas.

I get a gallon of wine from the state store and use that. Merlot will be fine and you can drink the rest of the jug wine after you top off with it.
