Representative selection of 6 Trentino white wines.
An exclusive wine, in all ways. A sunny wine, Mediterranean, obtained from slow fermentation
of grapes, allowed to dry on grates, called “arele”, and pressed during Easter Week. For this
reason it is called Vino Santo, fi ne, elegant, with a golden yellow, dazzling colour. With its long, long persistence it is incredibly convincing, joyous, but never tedious on the palate. Unique and premier among dessert wines , able to stand the test of time because it is made only in memorable years which guarantee incredible longevity.
Where does grape ripe better? In the sunny, highhill, sunny fi elds, thus culla respecting the natural cycle of the vine. This is also how the Gold Soliva is born. It results from a late picking of a variety created in the Fifties by Rebo Rigotti, a local winegrowing researcher.
This variety may be left on the vine without faringe autumn frosts, thus evaluating only the annual trend and the sugar concentrations of the grapes riping in the sun.
The name of this unforgettable white wine connects in part to the name Stravino, one of the typical villages of our mountain valley; more importantly, however, is the word play involved – Stravino means that the wine is something so special that it is “beyond wine, [“-stra means “beyond” in Italian].
Fascinating in its dark ruby colour like that of a ripe pomegranate, this innovative Trentino Syrah
shows a complex bouquet of spices, black pepper, hazelnuts and vanilla, all against a mildy earthy background. On the palate it is clean and intense on impact, then it reveals an elegant structure with silky softness. With a strong aging potential.
