Alto Adige is a dynamic winegrowing region at the northern end of Italy that combines a brisk alpine climate, mountain viticulture and complex geology with the brilliance of Mediterranean sunshine. Here, Cantina Tramin collectively gathers 300 small growers to produce the highest quality wine from specialty varieties like Gewürztraminer, Pinot bianco, Pinot grigio and Lagrein.
Grapes: Pinot Noir
Vineyards: The grapes selected for the production of our Pinot Nero come from the Glen and Mazzon subzone at an altitude of approximately 450 meters above sea level. The area is characterized by clay and sandy soils.
Winemaking: Extended maceration on the skins at controlled-temperatures (24°C) in large oak vats. After aging in French barrels for 14 months, the wine is kept in bottle for nearly one year prior to commercial release.
Tasting Notes: While Pinot Nero is originally from Burgundy, the grape has found a second home in our province for Pinot Nero has found more than 100 years. The best production areas for Pinot Nero are between Mazzon and Montagna. Maglen, our best Pinot Noir, is ruby in color with light garnet hues. It has scents of spice, cherry and sour cherry, and a delicate taste, clean, persistent and elegant, with good tannic structure.
