Vigna Ganger Pinot Noir Riserva




Alto Adige DOC

Production area

In 2008 we began the search for a site that is ideally suited to the production of Pinot Noir. 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 Mazon, 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.


The fully mature grapes are harvested manually at mid of September and delivered in small containers. The grapes - one fifth of them is vinified in  form of whole clusters - was filled by gravity into the steel tanks for alcoholic fermentation (25 days). Following malolactic fermentation, the wine was aged for 20 months in barriques and then stored for further 18 months in the bottle.
