A fine and filigreed Pinot Noir from the midhill slopes of Montagno and Gleno in the Alto Adige. The region's cooler climate and loamy, chalky, prophyry soils produce gorgeous wines with clean fruit, spice and a hint of smoke. A touch of grip and refreshing acidity make for a tight package.
|Wine maker notes
|Powerful ruby red colour. Fine characteristic Pinot bouquet with a clearly fruity character and a trace of spicey and smokey aromas. This wine is powerful and expressive on the palate with a pleasant tannic background. A noble wine for moderately complicated dishes.
|The Castelfeder Winery was founded in 1970 by Alfons Giovanett, who had attended the renowned wine school in San Michele all’Adige.
The small private winery originally lay in the center of Neumarkt/Egna in the south of Alto Adige and processed mainly red grapes of the Lagrein, Pinot Noir and Schiava varieties.
In 1989 the founder’s son, Gunther Giovanett, took over the management of the winery and at the same time, relocated the operations to the small village of Kurtinig/Cortina in the very south of Alto Adige.
The purchase of new vineyards and close collaboration with other winegrowers in the area offer Gunther new possibilities of producing great wines through careful selection of the best production areas and focused cultivation of choice varietals; a job he performs with enthusiasm.
The effort of Gunther and his wife Alessandra is confirmed by the decision of their two children Ivan and Ines, who both changed their passion into work.
A true family business with the goal of producing outstanding wines in a special region of Italy.
