PRODUCTION AREA: In this wine we groupe the historic grape varietals of our production area. Sandy, warm and deep soils such as the ones we find in the Bassa Atesina are ideal for Lagrein. The Lagrein vine is native to Alto Adige and grows throughout the Val d'Adige. The Pinot Noir and Schiava grapes are grown on the hillside vineyards of Cornaiano at an altitudes ranging 450 to 500 m above sea level in well aired vineyards.
WINEMAKING: The grapes are picked by hand and placed in small containers to prevent excess pressure on the grapes. Destemming and slow must fermentation at a controlled temperature in stainless steel tanks. Malolatic fermentation and aging in concrete vats.
TASTING NOTES & FOOD MATCHING: With this wine we want to express the typical nature of the red wines our production area. This red wine is the combination of the lightness and of the Schiava, the pleasant fruity richness of the Pinot Noir and the velvety and quite full-bodied bouquet of the Lagrein. This is a wine that goes well with grilled and roast meats, game and spicy cheeses.
