Alto Adige DOC

Production area

In 2008 we began the search for a site that is ideally suited to the production of Pinot Noir – a single site in which the grape variety has the right conditions for optimum development and can also reflect the specific character of the terroir, with the geology of its soils and its history. Years of thorough research and countless tests with mini production volumes finally led us to the perfect site, the Ganger monopole.
It is located in Mazzon, at between 360 and 380 meters above sea-level, with a southwesterly exposure and a slope of 3–5%, and has a unique microclimate and deep calcareous clayey soils. This is the home of our Pinot Noir Riserva Vigna Ganger, a wine as incomparable and unique as the site itself.

Winemaking

The fully mature grapes were harvested manually at the end of September 2012 and delivered in small containers. Following de-stemming, the must was transferred by gravity to steel tanks for fermentation (20 days). Following malolactic fermentation, the wine was left to rest for 20 months in barriques and then stored in the bottle for a further 18 months.
