Cantina Tramin, founded in 1898, has 310 member winegrowers who follow its strict directives on the cultivation of the vines and covers 260 hectares of vineyards situated on the sunny slopes at an altitude of 250-850 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.
The vineyard soils are made up of calcareous clay, limestone and a high presence of stone. Indeed, the name this wine refers to the stony soil in which the grapes are grown, which in local dialect is referred to as “stoan.”
The grapes were softly pressed. Fermentation took place in large oak barrels at a temperatures of between 18 to 20?C, where the malolactic fermentation also took place. The wine remained in these barrels on the fine lees for a period of 11 months, prior to bottling.
This mouthwatering white has complex aromas of golden apple, quince and lime. Elegant and spicy aromatics follow through on to the rich, full bodied palate, which has a long, fresh finish.
