Appellation: Alto Adige DOC
2013 Vintage Description: Due to low spring temperatures and continuous rainy periods in early summer, the vines began to grow and bloom later than in the previous years. The wellwatered soil was ideally prepared for a summer of high temperatures. Harvest began about ten days later than usual, and cool nights and sunny days complemented each other ideally shortly before the white wine harvest. The white wines show excellent and extraordinary quality, endowed with highly elegant aromas of fruit and intensive freshness! The red grapes yearned for the increasingly sparse hours of fall sun. The red wines show clear fruity aromas and typical varietal character, providing for authentic drinking pleasure even at a young age.
