Wine Facts

Winemaker Notes
The grapes used in this wine come from vineyards located in the mountain region of Serra Gaúcha in the Vale Trentino sub-region, facing both North and South, at an altitude of 697 metres. After being manually selected in the vineyard, the grapes are destemmed and crushed. Fermentation takes place using cultured yeast for 7 days in stainless steel vats. The wine remains on its less in the vats for 12 months with monthly stirring, during which time it
undergoes malolactic fermentation for one month. A portion of the wine is matured in 100% new Hungarian oak. The Y Espalier system allows free air circulation and higher sun exposure to the vine, giving the wine a high concentration of sugar and color.
