description

Details of wine

Nosiola is an ancient grape variety native to Trentino, once widespread throughout the region but whose cultivation is now restricted to the Valle dei Laghi and the hills above Trento and Pressano. It is a variety that gives a strong expression of its character only through the equilibrium found on poor soils, giving rise to wines of great delicacy and longevity. Nosiola has always been fermented on the skins in the past. The ability to obtain grapes that are “alive” and rich with the energy derived from the application biodynamics agricolture in the vineyard and the extraordinary energetic force of the amphora, allow us to produce this wine using an “ancient” method. The shape and the porosity of the clay, from which the amphora (tinaja from Villarrobledo, Spain) is made, permit a long stay of the wine on the skins: thus all of the Nosiola’s character is revealed slowly and with an evolution that requires patience and time.

In 1999 a new wine cellar was excavated under the old barn and is used solely to store the barriques for the ageing of the Teroldego. These small barrels are piled up in pyramids; the lighting is almost sacred and the setting artistic. Yet this is a functional space, with an ideal climate thanks to the loam plaster on its walls. The Teroldego is kept in barriques resting on gravel from the River Noce. The entrance has large, smooth stones piled up against the wall, beautiful large pebbles that magically draw the visitor down the steep steps. Balancing warmth and coolness, the familiar and the surprising, coarseness and refinement, nature and culture to create a harmonious whole are its unique features.
