Descrizione vino

This wine results from the vinification of 100% pure Merlot grape coming from 20-year-old espalier-trained vines, with a density of 5,000 plants per hectare. The origin is the classic South Tyrolean one: this is a very dry and hot area with quartz and porphyritic alluvial sediments that allows only low yields. Vinification involves a fermentation on the skins at 28 - 30 ° C in steel. Frequent careful reassembly of peels and juice for optimal color extraction. The wine ferments for 1/3 in barriques and 2/3 in 35 hl wooden vats for about 18 months. After careful bottling, 12 months of bottle aging follow.
