Moriz Pinot Bianco is sourced from vineyards planted between 250 and 550 meters on calcareous clay and gravel soils. The name of this wine refers to St. Mauritius, the patron saint of the small hamlet of Sella, above Tramin.
Alto Adige DOC
Temperatures above average in spring resulted in early budding and a prolonged period of high temperatures in May accelerated flowering. Thanks to careful vineyard management and occasional showers, the vines survived the summer characterized by stages of extreme heat without stress. The harvest began almost two weeks earlier than usual and, thanks to ideal weather conditions, the grapes reached an exceptional degree of quality. The red wines of the 2022 vintage are superb, as they could reach perfect ripeness and develop complex fruit notes. The flavor is full, with expressive aromas. The white wines, on the other hand, are characterised by notes of refined fruit and balanced acidity.
