Description

150 years ago, Archduke Johann of Austria brought this variety to South Tyrol. Today the Isarco Valley is one of the best white wine regions in Italy.

Nose

aromas of citrus fruits and alpine herbs

Palate

fresh, elegant and fruity dry wine, mineral and long alsting

Growing Conditions

On the sunny and steep slopes above the impressive Isarco River gorge, even at the height of summer, the nights are cool. So the acidity is conserved and the grape develops a marvellous aroma.

Harvest

Harvest by hand, extremely selective

Winemaking

The aroma has to be conserved during vinification – with a careful temperature control during fermentation and a great deal of attention during the maturation in stainless steel tanks.

Aging

Sylvaner can age well if it comes from the right vineyards in the Valle Isarco.

Appearance

Pale yellow

Food Pairing

Our Sylvaner is ideal with light starters, asparagus, wine soup and cooked or grilled fish. A Sylvaner is also a perfect aperitif wine.
