This extraordinary late harvest wine is one of the various expressions of Gewürztraminer: a dessert wine that packs an aromatic explosion into every sip.

MONTHS OF MATURATION
YEARS OF AGING POTENTIAL
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 extraordinary wine dry on the vine until end of November and beginning of December. After maceration, they are pressed very gently at 1.2 bar. Fermentation and aging take place in small French oak barrels for around 12 months. After bottling, the wine matures in the bottle for another couple of months.
