The grapes come from vineyards planted in calcareous clay and gravel soils at an altitude between 250 and 550 meters.
Alto Adige DOC
Winter ended with heavy snowfalls in the mountains. Warmer temperatures in March and April as well as well-nurtured soils caused premature and quite uneven budburst. A cool May then delayed flowering. A damp and hot month of June increased the risk of fungal diseases, which could be contained by intensive manual work in the vineyards. A dry spell, interrupted only by short and violent thunderstorms, characterised the rest of the summer. Two heat waves basically had no negative effect whatsoever. By mid-August, lowest temperatures started to drop significantly. A substantial diurnal temperature variation was registered throughout the harvest, which began about two weeks later than in the previous year. The white wines of the 2019 vintage show impressive freshness and especially Gewürztraminer showcases particular elegance. The red wines present a lot of fruit and lively tannins
- Grapes: Sauvignon
- Yield: 70 hl/Hectare
- Altitude: 350 – 500 m

The grapes for this wine were gently pressed off to steel tanks immediately after harvest. The must was allowed to ferment at controlled temperature (19 ° C) without malolactic fermentation.
It is a fine white wine, slightly aromatic intensely floral with a bouquet of elderflower and nettle, and spicy notes of paprika and
green gooseberries. Its freshness and intense flavour can be surprising.
Enjoyable as an aperitif and delicious with tasty appetisers. This Sauvignon also pairs well with asparagus, fish, seafood and poultry.
