Originally from France, this grape variety was brought to Alto Adige about 100 years ago but only much more recently to the Valle Isarco. The porphyry-rich, warm, frost-protected soils of the lower Valle Isarco with their South-Easterly exposure confer to this wine the characteristics that have made it one of the noblest among white wines.
Delicate processing and crushing are followed by temperature-controlled fermentation and ageing on fine lees in stainless steel tanks with a lack of malolactic fermentation.
A yellow wine with greenish hues, it has an intense bouquet of nettle and blackcurrant. It is dry and well-rounded, typical of its variety.
