Gewurztraminer "Pasithea ORO" DOC GIRLAN
A refined wine, always elegant and characterized by fruity hints that recall an orchard. It praises the denomination DOC Alto Adige and it is produced with 100% Gewürztraminer. The grapes come from a unique vineyard, located near the lake of Monticolo and Cornaiano. A particular feature characterizes these plants, the fruits are touched by the so-called “Noble Mould”, that contributes to the creation of a great, sweet wine. The harvest is traditionally manual and it starts in November. After a brief maceration, the entire bunches are pressed and the lees are eliminated through natural sedimentation of the must. The fermentation is managed in small barrels made of oak and last 6 months. The aging then is developed in the same containers for others 15 months.
