VINTAGE 2020: Spring 2020, with its beautiful weather and warm temperatures, with spring flowers in the garden and thick blankets of fresh snow on the mountains, has led to a relatively early development of the vines, which has levelled off with the cooler temperatures in June. After a warm mid-summer, the harvest began in the first days of September. Autumn was characterized by warm days and cool nights but also by some erratic weather, with the careful cultivation of the vineyards in early summer making itself felt. The 2020 vintage has produced wines of great Alto Adige typicity: The young white wines are characterized by fresh liveliness and clear aromatic expression, the red wines show very good structure and straightforward, fine fruit.
VINIFICATION: The classical “saignée” method: the must stays in contact with the skins for a short time. Then, the clear, rose-coloured must, with 20° Babo of sugar, is drawn off. No pressing, as usual. Fermentation takes place in steel tanks at a controlled temperature of 26°C. Finally, the sugar content as well as the temperature of fermentation give the wine its name.
