Bottega Vinai Gewürztraminer Trentino DOC
Cavit's Bottega Vinai Gewürztraminer is a 100% Gewürztraminer from Trentino. The grapes are grown fromin the sunny hills of Roveré della Luna and Valle dell'Adige, north of Trento, at altitudes between 250 and 400 m s.l.m. The perfectly ripe and carefully selected hand-picked grapes are de-stemmed and crushed; the must thus obtained remains in contact with the skins for short time at a temperature of 5-6 °C, in order to extract the aromas. Pressing is performed with particular care, avoiding excessive extraction of color, even if the must in this phase can take on a typical coppery color which spontaneously disappears during alcoholic fermentation, turning on a golden-yellow hues with pale green tones. After stainless steel fermentation at 20 °C, thew wine is refined in tanks for 4-5 months before bottling.
Bright golden yellow colour, with brilliant undertones; it shows a great consistency. To the nose it is intense, rich, with notes of rose and spices, such as thyme and juniper. In the mouth the wine is elegant and structured, of great balance, almost creamy. The aftertaste is very rich and expresses itself with long persistence, which evokes aromas of rose, apricot and dried pineapple. We suggest serving it at a temperature of 12-14 °C.
