Description

Sylvaner is a very old grape variety. It is part of the most important types of wine in the Valle Isarco. Along with Riesling, Sylvaner represents one of our main varieties. The three warm and airy locations of Kuenhof, Lahner and Gasteiger provide an extraordinary expressivity to this wine. Our Sylvaner presents itself as a complex salty wine with a fruity spice, a particularly strong taste and a long finish.
