Platt&Riegl Pinot Bianco
Alto Adige DOC
For this wine we choose the best Pinot Bianco grapes from the hillside of the Oltradige at an altitude from 450 to 550 m above sea level, in well aired vineyards. The different combination of soils, from clay to lime and gravel is what gives this wine its unique character.
The grapes are picked by hand and placed in small containers to prevent excess pressure on the grapes. Gentle whole cluster pressing and clarification of the must by natural sedimentation. 50% is fermented at controlled temperature in stainless steel tanks, 50% is fermented in large oak barrels (50 hl). The part in oak barrels is continued with malolactic fermentation. Aging on the lees for 6 months.
