Alpine wines

PUNTAY. For big moments.

The mountain landscape of Alto Adige shapes our wines. Our precious grapes thrive here and months of time-consuming manual labour go into nurturing them until the time is right. For our premium line we process a selection of exquisite grapes from the best locations. In the cellar, we also work in harmony with nature. The natural potential of the grapes is able to optimally develop here since the vinification process is carried out gently and without any time pressure. This creates special wines with exciting aromas and complexity - for the peak moments in life.

KALTERERSEE CLASSICO SUPERIORE

Designation of origin: Alto Adige DOC
Grape variety: Schiava
Vinification: Vinification in cement tanks; subsequent storage in oak barrels and Clayver (ceramic amphora) where malolactic fermentation takes place; ageing for 5 months.
Degustation: Light and luminous ruby red colour. Typical bouquet of Schiava grapes, with a marked hint of cherries and a light almond aroma. Persistent taste. A wine whose good structure allows a longer life than other wines made from this indigenous grape variety.
Dish ideas: Because of its drinkability, it can be paired with many dishes, from fish soups to bacon. It is the best „convivial wine“ you can try.
