Alto Adige DOC

Production area

The grapes for this wine grow on the hillside vineyards of  Cornaiano and Colterenzio at an altitude of 450 m above sea level in well aired vineyards, on moraine soils from the ice age. The position and exposure of the slope mean optimum sunlight which, together with the characteristics of the land, grows a full, lasting wine.

Winemaking

The vineyards have an average age of 30 years. The grapes are picked by hand and placed in small containers to  prevent excess pressure on the grapes. Destemming and slow must fermentation in stainless steel tanks. Malolatic fermentation and aging in big wooden barrels for 5 months.

Tasting notes & food matching

This wine is made only with the best harvests to guarantee its constant high quality. The delicate character of the grape varietal "Schiava" and the notable concentration of velvety tannins make this wine unique. It is an all-round red and particularly recommended with game, roast meats and cheese.
