This wine represents the perfect union between the most important and well-known red grape varieties of Trentino: Teroldego Rotaliano and Lagrein. Teroldego found its perfect terroir in the Piana Rotaliana area: this soil, for its unique geological and climate characteristics, gives the “prince of Trentino” all the elements to obtain a well-structured and rich wine. Lagrein has found its ideal environment along the hills above Adige river, where rocky and draining soil gives a fragrant and juicy wine with a delicate structure, which reduces the evident tannins of Teroldego. The traditional growing system of these varieties is called “pergola”, “simple” for Lagrein and “double” for Teroldego, and gives excellent exposure to the grapes and a great aromatic ripening without risk of burns for the berries.
Vigneti Delle Dolomiti IGT
Teroldego grapes are vinified following the classic red vinification process, at a temperature of 26°C (78°F) for around twelve days with selected yeasts. Lagrein grapes ferment at 24°C (75°F) for eight days with addition of selected yeasts. The half part of the final wine ages for six months in three years aged and lightly toasted French oak barrels as to enhance its rich fruitiness. It is then needed another twelve months of aging in steel and bottle.
Aroma & Flavor
