Trentino
Denominazione di origine protetta
GRAPE VARIETY
The origins of this grape have to be found in Central Europe. The colour of the skin is actually pink, but we obtain a white wine. Gewürztraminer is not an easy grape to grow, the yields are poor, and it is very mutant, as there are many different clones.

PRODUCTION AREA
This grape is very exigent in terms of soil and weather conditions, so that it is cultivated in small areas in Trentino. It gives the best results on gravelly soils, not calcareous; the vines need a good exposure to the sun and a cold-temperate climate.

WINEMAKING
Determining the optimum moment for picking is crucial in order to obtain maximum sugar concentration in the grapes without losing the variety’s aromatic qualities. Once the berries are de-stemmed and crushed, the mass is chilled and the juice is kept in contact with the skins for a short period, in order to enrich it with varietal aromas . The fermentation takes place at constant temperature of 17-19°C. About 5% of the juice is fermented in barrel. The wine is aged on the fine lees for a few weeks to exalt its aromatic character.

DESCRIPTION
Straw yellow in colour, aromatic on the nose with notes of rose petals and Muscat. Velvety, aromatic and warm on the mouth. It gives the best results if it is aged at least one year in bottle.
