Aromas of dried fruit, ripe apricots and quince make up the symphony of aromas, complemented by a fresh hint of citrus. In the mouth the wine is soft, full with an accentuated and persistent sweetness in the finish.
Harvest done by hand in small containers at the end of November. After a short maceration and pressing of the whole bunch, the decaying takes place by natural sedimentation of the must. Fermentation for 6 months in small oak barrels with subsequent refinement in the same barrels for a further 15 months.
Dessert wine with sweets, but also goes perfectly with blue, seasoned and spicy cheeses.
CANTINA GIRLAN was founded in 1923, by 23 winemakers, in the town of Girlan / Cornaiano in Alto Adige in a historic 16th century farm. Since 1923, CANTINA GIRLAN has been based in this typical Oltradige farm. Against the background of these walls where tradition can still be breathed in every corner and in the intertwining of corridors and ravines of the cellar the secrets of cutting-edge wine technology are hidden. In 2010 a process of modernization of the cellar was started, intended to bring it up to date with today's technical needs. CANTINA GIRLAN currently has 200 winemakers, located in a vineyard area of 220 hectares, in the best production areas of Oltradige and Bassa Atesina. The vineyards extend at an altitude between 250 and 550 meters above sea level, on different soils in their composition which constitute an ideal environment for the cultivation of numerous indigenous and international varieties. Alongside the land, a very important factor is the human one: that of the winemaker and our winemaker, Gerhard Kofler, who maintains a close relationship with the contributing members. It is from this fruitful exchange of experiences that the foundations for quality ambitions are born.
