LINE

Cru

The wines of this line are ambassadors of our terroir and reflect in a unique way the remarkable strengths of our individual sites. They are from selected vineyards where wine has been produced for centuries. Vinification occurs in steel tanks or wooden barrels, according to variety, so that they develop complexity and a refined bouquet. Strict quality guidelines, intense manual labour and demanding vineyard care and maintenance make them what they are: select wines that are finely structured and full of character.

Alto Adige DOC

Sauvignon
Lahn

2019

This grape with its intense and pronounced aroma, has been cultivated in the Oltradige area since the 1980s. The stony limestone gravel and the considerable range of temperatures in the Lahn Vineyards favour the production of a lively and expressive Sauvignon. With its freshness, delicate minerality, and splendid crispness, Lahn Sauvignon has a great personality.
