Characteristic: White Wine, dry
Denomination: Alto Adige Terlano DOC
Grape Variety: 100% Sauvignon Blanc
Terroir: sandy-stony, well-drained soils at Terlano, Orientation: South - Southwest
Vinification: Manual harvest and selection of the grapes; gentle whole cluster pressing and clarification of the must by natural sedimentation; slow fermentation at a controlled temperature in stainless steel tanks, aging on the lees in steel tanks for 5-7 months.
Description: Color: intensive straw yellow with a delicate green shimmer Smell: Ripe fruit aromas of apricot, mandarin and passion fruit mingle with elements of elderberry, nettle and mint. Taste: The fruitiness continues on the palate in combination with a fine acidity. The wine scores with a good structure and a minerally but at the same time aromatic finish.
Pairings: An interesting combination in spring with boiled white asparagus in Bolzano sauce as well as with steamed green asparagus; also with tuna carpaccio, smoked salmon and raw langoustines; and a typical South Tyrolean choice with nettle dumplings, as well as poached trout with vegetables or young goat’s cheese.
