Grape varieties:Merlot, Cabernet, Pinot Noir, Petit Verdot, Lagrein, Tempranillo, SyrahSite and soil:Our best red wine sites in Manincor, at Seehof, Pan-holzerhof and in Mazzon, between 250 and 500 m above sea-level, with strong clayey soils interspersed with limestone gravel and other glacial rock deposits.Vintage:2019 was not a year for volume, but in terms of quali-ty it was very good and in some cases excellent. The new shoots appeared early, but cold and wet weather in April and May held back vegetation growth to such an extent that it became a late year. A long ripening period in combination with a golden autumn finally created the conditions for a great vintage.From the end of September to the end of October we were able to harvest the grapes for all our red wines with perfect timing. The yield was 45 hl per hectare.Winemaking:La Rose de Manincor is the result of the top red wine batches being made by the saignée method, i.e. bleeding off a proportion of wine after only short contact with the skins –in this case 6 to 12hours; it increases the ratio of skins to juice in the vat in order toobtain a red wine with more colour and tannin. Consequently the composition and character of the rosé wine may vary slightly from year to year. Thelightly coloured juice so obtained is fermented in oak barrels partially using yeasts occurring naturally on the grapes. The young wine is subsequently matured on the fine lees to allow the aromas and flavour to develop.Bottled:39.400 bottles were filledinMarch2020.

Trentino Alto Adige

Trentino Alto Adige

Trentino Alto-Adige is characterized by the alpine peaks which soar for many thousands of feet above the Adige river Valley. The region follows the Adige river along its north-south course down from the Alps towards the plains, winding past various valleys and lakes.

Trentino-Alto Adige produces 8 DOCs and has a wide range of varieties: Schiava, Teroldego, Lagrein, and international grapes like Chardonnay and Pinot Noir among the most widely used. The standard red Trentino Rosso is made from the Cabernet grapes, with Merlot also thrown in to make it a near-complete Bordeaux Blend. Its white Trentino Bianco counterpart has Chardonnay and Pinot Bianco as its base, with Sauvignon Blanc, Muller-Thurgau and Manzoni Bianco as permitted auxiliaries.

Grape varieties In addition to the dominant local varieties Schiava and Lagrein, there's more and more interest for Teroldego and Pinot Noir amongst red grapes, while the main white grape vaeriteis are: Muller-Thurgau, Sylvaner and Gewurztraminer and some very fine examples of Sauvignon and Pinot Bianco, with other indigenous grapes like Nosiola.
