The Gewürztraminer grape variety has a delicate and intense aroma that passes intact from the grape into the wine, to which it conveys an unmistakable varietal character. Our Region’s unique weather conditions, with its hilly landscape and northern climate, are the ideal environment to achieve this grape variety’s best expression.
Maso Poli – Gewürztraminer
The grapes are sourced from vineyards that are not part of the Maso Poli estate but they are harvested in contracted vineyards on the hill of Martignano that dominates Trento at about 300 metres above sea level. The area has an exceptional exposure allowing the grapes to reach perfect ripeness. The soils are rich in clay on a limestone bedrock and the vines are guyot-trained. Harvest is left to the latest date possible so as to pick very ripe grapes with a high aromatic complexity. The grapes are handpicked and carefully selected before being cold-macerated and softly pressed. Fermentation takes place in temperature-controlled steel tanks and the wine is then aged on the lees for about 6 months.
The grape bunch is quite small, compact, short and can be winged. It is amber-pinkish in colour with a fleshy pulp and a distinct aromatic taste. The leaves are small, rounded and pentagonal.
Generally deep straw yellow in colour, veering to golden hues.
The nose offers a characteristic and unmistakable aromatically intense bouquet with hints of rose, spices and exotic fruits, above all the unmistakeable notes of lychee.
To the palate, it is aromatic, elegant and delicate, with a rich body and a pleasant aftertaste.
