A pleasant, full-bodied white wine with a rare elegance. Light green reflections sparkle through its golden colour. Its bouquet is characterised by fruity aromas, especially those of fresh green apples, such as those which ripen beside the vineyards of Merol. A fine balance between acidity and smoothness bestows a special structure on this Chardonnay. A fruity, lively, inviting wine which, when served chilled, goes well with many appetisers, with fish and white meat, or which may be enjoyed simply as an outstanding aperitif.

Color: clear pale yellow with a slight greenish shimmer. Smell: On the nose this classic Pinot Bianco scores with crisp notes of pear mingling with aromas of raspberry and lime, plus a touch of camomile and lemon grass to round off the composition. Taste: Body and balance sum up the Pinot Bianco, which intrigues the palate with the fruit of the pear and quince aromas combined with a salty minerality. The wine tickles the tongue and goes on to deliver a persistent aftertaste.

Without a doubt, the Pinot Bianco is one of the leading South Tyrolean white wines, especially in our area of cultivation, since this area provides the ideal conditions for wine of the highest quality. With its bright yellow colour with green reflections, this wine expresses the full grandeur of this variety. It has balanced aromas, a strong and pleasantly dry flavour, with fresh acidity and a pleasing smoothness. A wine which, when served chilled, is the ideal accompaniment to fish and white meat dishes
