More from this Producer
Our Pinot Grigio Riserva Giatl comes from selected individual vineyards in the location Giatl, stocked with vines grafted to slow growing rootstock and trained on wire trellises (Guyot). This extraordinary Pinot Grigio flourishes under outstanding cool mountain climatic conditions on a stony, sandy and extremely chalky soil that is very conducive to this Burgundy variety and creates a very fine and storable white wine. The Pinot Grigio Riserva Giatl is mainly aged in large wooden barrels, rests for a long time on the fine yeast and gains in complexity and density. This wine becomes a special experience even after several years of aging. Finally, our Pinot Grigio Riserva Giatl is the only Riserva wine of this grape variety in Alto Adige. It is a uniqueness that makes this Burgundy variety increasingly exciting.
This Pinot Noir Riserva flourishes at the remarkable altitude of 1.030 meters above sea level (3.380 ft.) in the immediate vicinity of the farm Koflhof in Aldino, in the lowlands of Alto Adige. The perfect southern position of the vineyard on porphyry and dolomite limestone, the ideal solar radiation as well as the daily wind “Ora” from the south guarantee the optimal ripening conditions of the berries.
This wine, full of character, comes from selected individual vineyards stocked with vines grafted to slow growing rootstock and trained on wire trellises (Guyot). The extraordinary quality of our Riserva stems from grapes grown under the best conditions on the loamy soils in the community of Ora with tender care of the vineyards.
The Pinot Grigio is a selection of the best vineyards of the valley floor and steep slopes near the vineyard estate. It flourishes under outstanding climatic conditions on a stony, sandy and extremely chalky soil. The poor yield per hectare and the particular terroir are responsible for the outstanding quality of the wine. The fascinating interplay between tradition and innovation, man and the surroundings, sense and sensuality finds expression in the passion and sensitivity with which Peter Zemmer brings this wine to life.
Grafted to slow-growing rootstock and trained on traditional wire trellises (Guyot), this Gewürztraminer grows in the best vineyard zones in the valley floor around the center of Cortina s.s.d.v.
