Pinot Noir

Alto Adige is one of the few wine-growing areas of Italy with optimum conditions for this grape variety, which is why it is today one of the main local red wines. Pinot Noir prefers cool, well ventilated sites and calcareous gravel soils with a high loam content. Our Pinot Noir comes from selected sites in Appiano, Pochi and Cortaccia and, more than any other wine, offers a convincing combination of finesse and body.
