Trattmann Pinot Noir Riserva

Vintage

2015

Classification

Alto Adige DOC

Production area

We only use carefully selected grapes harvested on especially fertile soil with low yields to make this wine. Most of the grapes come from our vineyards in Cornaiano, which are planted on moraine soils that are very rich in fossils (porphyritic rock) and that give the wine its typical aroma, fullness and finish. The remaining grapes come from the land around Monte in the Town of Appiano, where the soil is fresher than in Cornaiano (as the sun sets earlier here). The silty and clayey soils on a limestone bedrock give the wine freshness and flavour.

Winemaking

The grapes are picked by hand and placed in small containers to prevent excess pressure on the grapes. Destemming and slow must fermentation (18-20 days) in stainless steel tanks (gravity-flow). Malolatic fermentation and aging for 15 months partly in big wooden barrels (12 hl), partly in barrique and 8 months in the bottle.

Tasting notes & food matching

A ruby-red colour with slight tones of grenadine and an intense and complex bouquet with notes of ripe fruit, cherry and maraschino. A soft and delicate taste with a good fruity tannic framework and persistence. An excellent table wine, perfect for serving with roast meats, game and spicy cheeses.
