Venosta Valley Zweigelt - Winery Befehlhof - Vetzan
The flagship of the Marinushof is the Pinot Noir stored in the small oaken barrel. With strict selection in the vineyard this red wine becomes more intensive, more spicy, more complex. The oaken barrels are partly new, partly used, because the Pinot's fruit must have priority. With the strong profit limitation in the vineyard the wine wins in depth and strength. A Pinot who makes us a lot of joy and can be stored long.
Zweigelt is a grape variety that finds its ideal cultivation area at medium altitudes. This is why it has gained a leading position among the varieties typically grown in Valle Isarco. The Wine is obtained selected and fully ripe Zweigelt grapes, fermented in stainless steel tanks and aged in wooden barrels. It is fermented and aged in steel vats so that the resulting wine proves fresh, fruity and youthful. Its garnet red colour is full of light and recalls the delicate fragrance of cherries and wild berries. To the palate it is fresh and full of mineral nuances, combined with smooth and pleasant notes of tannin and of light acidity.
