Alto Adige Cabernet Sauvignon Riserva, DOC 2019
Dark ruby, berry aromas with a touch of pepper, multilayered, elegant, intense finish.
Our Cabernet Sauvignon is never in a hurry and can be laid down for several years. The vines enjoy the warm microclimate and the permeable soils at the Seehof. There, the grapes achieve optimum maturity. Dark and rich ruby in color, this elegant wine has delicate aromas of raspberry and currant, with hints of cedar, chocolate and peppery spice. Fine-grained tannins support the fullness of the fruit for a wonderful balance. The finish is long and persistent.
Manual harvest and selection of the grapes from the oldest vineyards. Destemming and mash fermentation under controlled temperature in stainless steel tanks. After malolactic fermentation, 12 months’ ageing in barriques (30% new). Assemblage 2 to 3 months before bottling and a further 12 months of ageing in the bottle.
