Donà Blanc 2013
(Price in Euro: 32,50)
147 00 Praha
Is a cuvée made up of Pinot Blanc and Chardonnay. These two varieties have been cultivated in South Tyrol for over 100 years and here, in suitable terroirs, they can produce wines of special charm. Wines obtained from ripe fruit, with soft body and a minerality that transpires clearly after a few years ageing.
The Donà Blanc grapes come from old vines located on two different soils, a light and porphyric one with high mineral content, and a more consistent, clayey and limy one.
The aromatic grapes, when fully ripe, are subjected to careful and gentle pressing and their juice is left to ferment in wooden barrels. This is followed by the natural malolactic fermentation. The refining on lees for 23 months in the barrels and a 2-years bottle ageing give the Donà Blanc roundness and softness, allowing it develop to the full its sapid and well mineralized character.
Grape variety: Pinot Bianco 60%, Chardonnay 40%
