Alto Adige GEWÜRZTRAMINER RISERVA DOC BRENNTAL

Gewuerztraminer Brenntal Riserva

From the thirteenth century until the early modern period Traminer was best known wine from the region of South Tyrol. During the daytime the Brenntal site, located at the northwestern end the village Kurtatsch, is among the warmest. The Gewürztraminer grape obtains those beguiling aromas from the depth of the red loamy soil, inducing one to baroque descriptions: dewdrop-covered peonies, acacia honey, caramelized orange peel, mangoes, lychees and lavender. Gewürztraminer would “respire” too much acid at lower sites – on these exposed terraces, which have been covered with dry stone walls for centuries, the muscular wine takes on a racy acidity and spiciness. From the colorful mishmash of rocks that forms the ancient dry-stone walls, one can actually see what Gewürztraminer Brenntal communicates to the palate about its soil: a complex interplay of minerals that emerges as a hearty, juicy finish with the increasing maturity of the wine. Brenntal's aging potential, in fact, is quite impressive. For this reason, it is offered only as a RISERVA.

Territorio Brenntal Gewurztraminer
BRENNTAL 250 - 350 m

The Gewürztraminer Riserva has its name from the vineyard: Brenntal. This site is higher up from the Merlot in Brenntal, between 250 and 380 meters in Alto Adiges most typical area for Gewürztraminer. The gravelly, loamy soil has excellent drainage. This warm terroir is responsible for this Gewürztraminer’s unique flavor and density, as well as for its exceptional longevity.
