Description

Peter Zemmer Rolhüt Pinot Noir Alto Adige DOC 2018

This velvety and elegant Pinot Noir is produced by Peter Zemmer in Alto Adige – the German-speaking part of Italy. It offers flavours of forest raspberry and fresh red cherries. Peter produces wines of very high quality, and four of them have won the “Two Glasses” award from Gambero Rosso – probably the most prestigious national wine competition in Italy. Peter’s secret is that his vineyard is located at 450 metres above sea level in the foothills of the Alps.  These hills, a conglomerate of loam and chalk soils and its very well-suited climate, form the ideal basis for producing a Pinot Noir of highest quality.Even in summer, cool winds from the glaciers help to preserve the natural acidity of the grapes.

The grapes are de-stemmed first, then fermented at a constant temperature of 26–28°C for about 7 days. The must is kept in contact with the skins through circulation pumping and gentle pressure from below. After two gentle rackings, half of this Pinot Noir is aged in large barrels of French oak for 8 months, and the remainder is aged in small casks of French oak (barriques) that are 2–3 years old. After blending, the wine is bottled and aged for an additional 6 months in the bottle.

Medium ruby and garnet colour. Captivating aromas of wild forest raspberry, fresh red cherry and dried cranberry. The dry and med-bodied palate possesses velvety flavours of fresh and dried red fruits, balanced by a mouth-watering acidity. Harmonious, mature and seductive with a persistent finish of cranberry and sour cherries.

Good to cellar for 5-6 years!
