Alto Adige DOC
220 – 350 m s. l.m.
The vineyards are situated in the area surrounding Magrè, at the foot of a gentle slope and at an altitude of between 220 and 350 metres with a southern/south-eastern exposure. The white chalky gravel soils have a high content of 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 LEVAD Merlot grapes are harvested by hand. After being carefully destemmed, the must is fermented in stainless steel tanks with gentle pumping over. The wine is then aged in barriques for 12 months and in the bottle for a further year.
