Production area: The grapes chosen for this extraordinary wine come the Cornaiano area in the Überetsch hills, at an altitude of 450 - 500 m above sea level. They are grown in different vineyards with an age between 10 and 15 years. The vines are trained using the Guyot technique. The growing area is rich in minerals, the result of ice age sedimentation.
Vinification: After harvesting, the grapes are soft pressed. Fermentation at controlled temperature takes place in French oak casks of 12 and 50 hl, followed by malolactic fermentation. This is followed by refinement in the barrel on fine lees for 12 months. It is refined in the bottle for 7 months before it can be sold.
Appearance: "Riserva Bianca" expresses its character with intensive clean and fresh aromas. Excellent structure. Flavoursome mineral bouquet that remains on the palate. Great balance.
Production area: Cornaiano
Grape varieties: Pinot Bianco, Chardonnay, Sauvignon

Colour: intensive, dark garnet red. Aroma: complex and multi-layered, ripe berry aromas with cherries and barberries, tangy notes of tobacco and leather, elements of liquorice and eucalyptus, forest soils, dense and full. Taste: convincing structure, finesse and character, soft and velvety nature combined with concentration and extract, finely integrated acidic base, pronounced tannins, fresh and invitingly drinkable, persistent quality - truly one of the most authentic and best interpretations of the native South Tyrolean Lagrein grape
elegant and robust white wine, COLOUR yellow with greenish hues to light yellow, NOSE fruity with scents of peach and green apple, TASTE dry, robust, long finish, fresh
An elegant frame and fine consistency, with intense fruity notes. An excellent structure that is flavoursome and mineral, with a persistent palate. We recommend serving this wine with refined dishes, including meats.
A fine, intense aroma supported by a full but at the same time, harmonious body are characteristics of "Gewürztraminer". "Nouvelle cuisine" offers many more opportunities to enhance the characteristics of this wine. Also we recommend serving this wine with shellfish, flavoured cheeses and desserts, such as strudel.
