There are times when we deserve a reward or a moment of self-indulgence. Serenade suspends time and the chaos around us in an amber-shaded dream of life’s potential realities.
After a very dry, warm winter, spring saw the earliest appearance of shoots on the vines in the history of modern winegrowing in South Tyrol. The relatively cool months of April and May then caused a delay in the vegetation phases. The beginning of summer was somewhat cool and damp, providing sufficient precipitation for an optimal start to the ripening phase. The ripening process was also positively influenced by a very warm and dry August. The autumn weather was very fine at the beginning of the harvest, with just a few rainy days during the whole picking process, allowing all grape varieties in every type of location to develop in the best possible way. The 2012 white wines are of exceptional quality, with fine fruit and acidity and a harmonious structure.
Harvesting of fully ripe grapes, which were then dried on straw mats for five months and pressed in March (35°KMW), 18 l must from 100 kg fresh grapes, spontaneous fermentation and 24-month ageing on the fine lees in tonneaux.
Southwest-facing slope 300 meters above sea level, balmy and aerated micro-climate. Sandy weathered chalk.
– bright golden-yellow
– rich bouquet of fruit, nutmeg, mandarin oranges, and exotic candied fruit
– smooth power on the palate, orange peel and mango, the wine
surprises pleasantly with a crisp, clean finish
This wine is ideal as a dessert on its own, or to enjoy with ripe, blue cheeses.
