Spirited, jovial and unpretentious. Drinks just like it should with authentic varietal flare.
Vibrant violet colour tending towards ruby.
Fragrant and vinous aromas of ripe berries such as strawberry, cherry and raspberry, fresh flowers and wet grass on a dewy morning.
Soft and light bodied, juicy flavours with a delicate acidity, well balanced with a surprisingly long finish. Pleasant easy drinking.
This wine is young with fresh fruit flavours but easy on structure so it would be best with simple dishes, even as an aperitif. Some examples: cold cuts and medium aged cheese, grilled chicken salad, roasted chestnuts.
Vino Novello is the Italian equivalent of French Beaujolais. The grapes, once harvested, undergo carbonic maceration which consists of saturating unpressed grapes with carbon gas for a period of 1 to 2 weeks. This process induces a partial alcoholic fermentation inside the grapes and encourages the extraction of phenolic components. After this, the grapes are then pressed and the must completes the alcoholic fermentation producing wines that are fruity, soft and already ready to drink from October/November.
Gaierhof is a cooperative winery in Trentino Alto Adige, the most northern region of Italy. They receive their grapes from from 160 associate farmers in the areas of Colline Di Lavis and Roveré della Luna. Teroldego is an autochthonous varietal from Trentino Alto Adige known for being deeply pigmented, fruity and soft. Even with the carbonic maceration, this wine retains the identity of the varietal, making it both drinkable and characteristic.
