Notes from the Winemaker:

Sylvaner is an ancient variety that has long been grown in Central Europe, in Transylvania. DNA fingerprinting has revealed it to be a cross between Traminer and the “hunnic” variety Österreichisch-Weiß (meaning “Austrian White”). It was introduced in Alto Adige in the early 18th Century and it is produced exclusively in Valle d’Isarco, where it gained the DOC appellation in 1975.

Tasting Notes:
Color: Bright straw-yellow.
Bouquet: Elegant nose characterized by fresh aromas of tropical fruit, pineapple and banana, together with hints of exotic herbs, lemon verbena and flowers.
Flavor: The palate is dry, crispy, full, with a persistent, pure and refined finish.
Pairings: Pairs well with appetizers, asparagus recipes, grilled or boiled fish, snails. Excellent with the typical German country dishes with Speck, knödel, frittata and soups.

Vinification: Fermentation in stainless steel tanks.

Aging Process: The wine is left to refine on noble lees for 8 months in stainless steel tanks, and two months after bottling.
