Alto Adige Pinot Nero, DOC 2020
Bright ruby red, fruity, elegant berry aromas, delicate spices, silky tannins, rich and elegant.
The Pinot Noir glows ruby red, with a sparkle that comes from ideal hours of sunshine. It grows in the historic Preyhof vineyard on clayey soils and enjoys a comparatively cool microclimate on this, the best Pinot Nero site in Caldaro. That lends emphasis to the typical notes of cherry, redcurrant and blueberry. Delicately spicy aromas set off the bouquet. The palate is round and juicy, with elegant, fine-grained tannins. The wine has a persistent finish.
Manual harvest and selection of the grapes. Cold maceration (5 days) followed by fermentation and gentle pressing. Malolactic fermentation in stainless steel tanks with subsequent ageing in barriques and tonneaux. Assemblage after 12 months followed by bottling and 6 months’ ageing in the bottle.
