Gewürztraminer Trentino D.O.C.
Thanks to the exceptional position of Gewürztraminer vines, that are exposed to the sun from morning to early evening, we chose to produce the Gewurztraminer at a high altitude among the woods of Valle dei Ronchi. The small bunches of this grape, mature perfectly to obtain an extraordinary wine that is distinct, aromatic and long lasting.
