Baron SalvadoriChardonnay Riserva
Alto Adige DOC
220 – 350 m s. l.m.
The vineyards are situated in Magrè, around to the Baron Salvadori estate, on a gentle slope at an altitude of between 220 and 350 metres with a southern/south-eastern exposure. The white chalky gravel soils contain well-ventilated humus.
The Mediterranean climate is characterised by hot summers and mild winters, as well as the Ora, a warm afternoon wind that comes from Lake Garda to the south.
The grapes are harvested by hand. After the whole cluster pressing, the must is left to settle at a cooler temperature for 30 hours. Fermentation then takes places in small oak barrels. After malolactic fermentation, the young wine is aged on the fine lees for 12 months and then in the bottle for further two years.
