Flora Cuvée Bianco Riserva

Vintage

2015

Classification

Alto Adige DOC

Production area

For this extraordinary wine we choose the best Chardonnay grapes from the hillside vineyards of Cornaiano. They grow in different vineyards with an age between 10 and 15 years, at an altitude from 450 to 500 m above sea level. The vines are trained using the Guyot system. The growing area is rich in minerals, the result of ice age sedimentation.

Winemaking

The grapes are picked by hand and placed in small containers to  prevent excess pressure on the grapes. Gentle whole cluster pressing and clarification of the must by natural sedimentation. Pinot Bianco and Sauvignon are fermented at controlled temperature in stainless steel tanks. Chardonnay is fermented in oak barrels of 12 and 15 hl, followed by malolactic fermentation. Aging on the lees for 12 months. After blending and bottling, the wine is aged for other 12 months before we release it. 

Tasting notes & food matching

An elegant frame and fine consistency, with intense fruity notes. An excellent structure that is flavoursome and mineral, with a persistent palate. We recommend serving this wine with refined dishes, including meats.
