An elegant dessert wine with golden hues and great intensity. Combining floral and fruit notes with hints of honey and cinnamon, this is a rich and warm wine that is sweet but never cloying
Cantina Tramin, founded in 1898, has 280 member winegrowers who follow its strict directives on the cultivation of the vines and covers 230 hectares of vineyards situated on the sunny slopes at an altitude of 250-700 metres above sea level. These vineyards are an integral part of the enchanting and picturesque landscape of the Alto-Adige region of northern Italy. In 2011, Cantina Tramin gained the "Double Stella". This is given to a winery for achieving the prestigious "3 Bicchieri" 20 times and is awarded by the Gambero Rosso.
Harvested in December, then macerated for around 12 hours, the grapes were then gently pressed under a pressure of 1.8 bar. The wine was then fermented and aged in French oak barrels.
An excellent match for desserts, dried fruit, strong cheese or foie gras.
