Clinga Gewürztraminer

Trentino DOC

Selections from Cantina Lavis stem from the “wine zoning project” that has represented the Cantina’s underlying philosophy for over 30 years. These unique wines are products of excellence grown in selected areas, in particularly suitable vineyards. This Gewürztraminer is the best expression of the typical zones where these vines are grown. Golden straw-yellow colour. Delicately aromatic tones, with hints of rose hip and citrus scents of cedar and lime, leading to a background tone of ginger. Fully flavoured, energetic notes of yellow flowers and acacia honey define an elegant and complex taste. Acidity lingers in its tense and lasting finish.
