The Gewürztraminer Trentino DOC from Lavis embodies the excellence of the Trentino territory. Produced in particularly suitable vineyards located in the municipality of Lavis, this wine features a golden straw-yellow color and a delicate aromatic bouquet. The scents range from rose hip to citrus notes of cedar and lime, with an undertone of ginger. On the palate, the wine is full-flavored, with energetic notes of yellow flowers and acacia honey defining an elegant and complex taste. The acidity lingers in a tense and lasting finish. The winemaking process includes an 8-hour cryomaceration and fermentation in stainless steel tanks and French oak barriques. The wine is then aged on the lees for 10-12 months before bottling and further aged in the bottle for a minimum of 6 months. It pairs wonderfully with any kind of shellfish, white meats, and baked cheese.Denomination: Gewurztraminer Trentino DOC
