Flora Pinot Noir Riserva
Alto Adige DOC
The grapes for this wine derive from our 3 Pinot Noir-growing sites "Girlan", "Pinzon" and "Mazon". The selected parcels are particularly suitable due to their geological and microcilmatic characteristic. The vineyards are located at an altitude between 380 and 530 meters a.s.l. and are characterized by morainic deposits on volcanic porphyry rock as well as by west-facing, loamy limestone soils on the other.
The grapes are picked by hand and placed in small containers to prevent excess pressure on the grapes. After destemming, the must is filled by gravity into the steel tanks where the alcoholic fermentation takes place (20-22 days). After the malolactic fermentation, the wine is aged for 12 months in barriques (70%) and small wooden barrels of 12 hl. (30%). Finally, the wine is stored for further 6 months in the bottle.
