This line represents typical South Tyrolean white and red wines, vinified in the traditional method and reflecting our particular microclimate and our sites. After a careful manual harvest, the grapes are vinified in steel tanks, except for the reds. Varietal typicality, pure aromas and lighter drinking enjoyment are the distinguishing characteristics of this line. They promise honest and authentic pleasure with great value for money.
Pinot noir (Pinot Nero or Blauburgunder) is one of the most appreciated and ambitious red wines. Pinot noir does not adapt well to many conditions, and it represents a challenge both in the vineyard and in the cellar. Thanks to its delicate aroma and distinctive character, it enjoys great prestige. This Pinot noir develops its full potential on the cool yet sunny vineyard sites of Eppan, yielding a full bodied and elegant wine.
