DOC Alto Adige Cabernet Sauvignon
||95% Cabernet Sauvignon, 5% Merlot
||Gently sloping, south-east facing vineyard at 220 – 260 meters above sea level.
||After a very dry, warm winter, spring saw the earliest appearance of shoots on the vines in the history of modern winegrowing in South Tyrol. The relatively cool months of April and May then caused a delay in the vegetation phases. The beginning of summer was somewhat cool and damp, providing sufficient precipitation for an optimal start to the ripening phase. The ripening process was also positively influenced by a very warm and dry August. The autumn weather was very fine at the beginning of the harvest, with just a few rainy days during the whole picking process, allowing all grape varieties in every type of location to develop in the best possible way. The red wines are very fruity, with a pronounced character that is typical of the variety and juicy.

||Fermentation in large wooden casks with extended maceration for 4 weeks, malo-lactic fermentation done.
