2015

Classification

Alto Adige DOC

Production area

All of the grapes for the production of this wine come from a single vineyard near Lake Monticolo (Cornaiano). The specific characteristics of the vineyard contribute to the development of noble rot, which makes it possible to grow a truly great sweet wine. 

Winemaking

The grape have been harvested on end of November 2015. The grapes are picked by hand and placed in small containers to  prevent excess pressure on the grapes. After a short period of maceration, gentle whole cluster pressing and clarification of the must by natural sedimentation. Fermentation in small oak barrels for 6 months. Aging for 15 months in small oak barrels. 

Tasting notes & food matching

The aroma of dried fruits, ripe apricots and quince are behind the symphony of scent nuances that is completed with a fresh touch of citrus fruit.  To the palate, this wine is soft, full and has an accentuated sweetness that persists in the after-taste.  The late harvested Paithea Oro is a dessert wine to accompany cakes, but it also goes well with herby, matured and spicy cheeses.  A totally unique pleasure.
