Passito Bianco Mitterberg IGT ARUNA

The Aruna Passito, a white cuvée, is a prime example
of the prevailing dynamic in Kurtatsch: Gewürztraminer is considered to be one of the most difficult grapevines in the vineyard, and Moscato Giallo only develops its delicate aroma on exceptional sites.
Aruna unites these sophisticated wines at the highest level. The microclimate found in Kurtatsch, with alluvial land and lime-rich gravel, forms the basis for this premium dessert wine, in combination with intensive vineyard work. In addition, the high autumn mist from the Adige Valley favors noble rot on the berries.
After painstaking cellar work, a meditation wine with distinctive regional characteristics, fruity brilliance and remarkable longevity is born. The spectacular aroma evokes mountain apricots, pears, lavender honey and ripe exotic fruit. Through a painstaking development on the lees, Aruna takes on structure and dense juiciness. Its fruity finish is accompanied by a bracing and vibrant interplay of acidity and sugar.

Territorio Passito Aruna

The Gewürztraminer vines grow in loamy, sandy soil. At altitudes ranging between 450 and 550 meters, the Gewürztraminer grapes retain lively fruit acidity. In November, stratus clouds in the mornings favor the formation of highly prized noble rot on the berries. The late harvest is carried out at the end of November or early December, depending on the year.
