More info

The grapes used for this wine come from the Südtirol, in the Alto Adige DOC. The vineyards are situated at altitudes of between 350 and 450 metres above sea level and are planted in soils which are made up of gravel and calcareous clay. The vines yield 55 hectolitres per hectare. The combination of soils and abundant sunshine give this wine a unique taste and detail. Manually harvested.

The grapes were macerated at controlled temperatures of 26°C with daily stirring and submersion of the cap in order to increase the levels of extraction from the grape skins. Fermentation and ageing took place in a combination of French barriques, oak casks and stainless steel vats for at least six months.

Cantina Tramin

Cantina Tramin was founded in 1898 and has 310 member winegrowers who follow its strict directives on the cultivation of the vines. The vineyards are an integral part of the enchanting and picturesque landscape of the Alto-Adige region of Northern Italy and cover 260 hectares situated on the sunny slopes of the region at altitudes ranging from 250 to 850 metres above sea level.

In 2011, Cantina Tramin gained the "Double Stella" award. This is given to a winery for achieving the prestigious "3 Bicchieri" 20 times and is awarded by the Gambero Rosso.

Jancis Robinson MW says the following about Cantina Tramin:

"Cantina Tramin is a reliable source (of top quality dry white wines). The sleepy village of Termeno/Tramin, is the birthplace of the Traminer white grape variety, also known as Gewürztraminer (spiced Traminer) for its heady aroma. Even today Tramin really is very good for Traminer, and has been waking up in response to a discernible fashion for this powerfully scented, full-bodied varietal wine throughout Italy."
