The key to producing excellent wines starts first and foremost in the vineyard. It is here that the best quality grapes can be obtained through strict selection and by limiting yields. The consistent application of this philosophy in the winery too is a further guarantee of distinct varietal typicity, great structure, and brilliant mature potential. This is the company philosophy that is epitomised at Cantina Valle Isarco by the Aristos range.
The Grüner Veltliner grapes with their unmistakable aroma, come from vineyards situated in the best production areas of the middle Valle Isarco. The severe selection of grapes and the careful vinification process give this wine its special character. Ageing in acacia wood casks gives this wine its typically robust and aromatic character. Delicate crushing after a short period of contact with the skins is followed by temperature-controlled fermentation carried out in large acacia wood barrels for half the fermentation, then continued in stainless steel tanks. While it does not undergo malolactic fermentation, it rests on its fine lees for a period of 7 months.
This greenish, pale yellow wine has a delicate and harmonious nose, punctuated by fruity, floral and herbal notes. On the palate it is fresh, slightly aromatic, and pleasantly spiced. This is followed by a persistent and refined finish.
