This Pinot Noir comes from one of the few vineyards in Alto Adige which is dedicated to this very specific variety. The exposure to the West ensures a lot of sun in the evening. During the night the cold winds from the Dolomites cool down the vineyards, what is very important for the elegance and intense aromatic profile of this wine.
