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.

The grapes for this wine are harvested by hand and delivered in small bins. Maceration is carried out at controlled temperature (26 ° C) with daily pump-overs and submersion of the cap to increase the level of extraction from the grape skins. The wine ferments and ages in a combination of French barriques, oak casks and stainless-steel vats for at least 6 months.
Pinot Noir is ruby in color with light garnet hues.
Its seducing scent recalls forest fruits, plums, raspberries and cherries and it is characterised by a juicy and fruit.
It is velvety soft and a fresh acidity on the palate is framed by fine-grained tannins and a slight hint of floral notes.
