Lago di Caldaro Classico Superiore "Quintessenz" DOC CALDARO - KELLEREI KALTERN
This Trentino wine comes from Schiava grapes vinified in 100% purity by using vines with an age between 20 and 50 years which are able to develop a yield of 80 hectoliters per hectare of vineyard. The training system, in order not to forget anything about the local tradition, is that of the Trentino pergola. The vinification involves a first phase with fermentation on the skins and with maceration for a week at a controlled temperature of 24°C. Then follows the lactic fermentation and aging of 4 months on the fine lees in steel tanks and partly in concrete barrels. The vineyard stands on a predominantly calcareous, clayey medium-textured and warm soil.
