The grapes for this Bordeaux blend come from vineyards planted in calcareous clay and gravel soils at an altitude of 300 m above sea level.
Alto Adige DOC
A long winter left the vines dormant until early April. Bud break was followed by a drop in temperatures, which delayed flowering. The weather remained changeable throughout the summer, with a very hot June and wet July, providing the ideal groundwork for the imminent maturation period. August presented itself from its best side, with sunny and dry weeks and extraordinarily low temperatures at night. Apart from few showers in late September/early October, the weather during the harvest, which started 10 days later than last year and with lower volumes than usual, was characterised by many warm days with increasingly cooler nights. The white wines of the 2021 vintage showcase great depth and reveal pronounced freshness and delicate fruity notes on the palate, whereas the fuller bodied red wines boast mature tannins and fresh aromas of fruit.
