Gewürztraminer

Trentino Doc

Gewürztraminer is an aromatic grape variety that reaches its full potential when left on the vine as long as possible. The cold alpine air currents that characterize the climate in the Cembra Valley ensure dry grapes and slow and gradual ripening. The ‘Storie di Vite’ Gewürztraminer has a warm, vivid golden yellow colour. Its complex flavour has floral and spicy notes, with hints of rose, cinnamon and cloves.
The flavour is dry, full and smooth on the palate.
