Ritratti

Gewürztraminer

Trentino DOC

Gewürztraminer is an aromatic grape variety of Alsatian origin that since years has found the perfect home in some micro-areas of the Pressano hills. Here the soils rich in clay meet the nutritional needs of the vine extremely well.

Ritratti Gewürztraminer has a bright yellow colour and a nose full of intense and characteristic aromas with floral notes. On the palate the wine is full and fine, with a singular tanginess.
