Pepi Sauvignon


The grapes come from vineyards planted in calcareous clay and gravel soils at an altitude between 250 and 550 meters.


Alto Adige DOC



vintage description

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.


  • grapes: Sauvignon
  • yield: 55 hl/hectare
  • altitude: 450m above sea level
  • soil: calcareous clay and gravelly soils
  • climate: extreme interplay between sunny days, influenced by the Mediterranean climate, and cool nights, marked by the cold downslope winds from the surrounding mountains


After harvest, the grapes are gently pressed at low pressure. The wine ferments slowly at controlled temperature (19°C) in small stainless-steel tanks. Subsequently it ages for 6 months in wood barrels (30 – 40 hl on the lees), without malolactic fermentation.
