Pinot Nero DOC Elena Walch
100% Pinot Noir cultivated in the area of Caldaro lake. This wine is the expression of the interesting dialogue between the vineyards planted at 400 meters elevation and those located 600 meters above the sea level. The soils, with their south-east and south-west exposition, are composed by limestone and porous stones. The wine making considers 10 days maceration in contact with skins, followed by fermentation in steel at controlled temperature. The malolactic fermentation and the aging are developed both in steel and in 22hl oak barrels.
