This wine, full of character, comes from selected individual vineyards stocked with vines grafted to slow growing rootstock and trained on wire trellises (Guyot) or on the pergola. The grapes of this cuvée grow under the best conditions on the valley floor around the village of Cortina. The favorable location of the vineyards, the ideal amount of sun, and the fine ventilation of the vines assure the ripening of grapes of exceptional quality of this cuvee Cortinie. A wine of conspicuous greatness, it presents itself as compact and very concentrated with a wide palette of varietal characters. The colour is deep, compact garnet red. The bouquet shows an aromatic variety of violets, bitter chocolate, tobacco, black pepper and notes of freshly cut grass. The flavour is powerful, dry, of a solid structure with a lengthy lasting savour.

The producer

The family business Peter Zemmer KG is one of the oldest wineries in the Alto Adige, a winegrowing region whose tradition was already famed during the period of the Roman emperors since wine, culture, and art have been here closely intertwined throughout history. The valley floor around Cortina and the wide selection of grape varieties are as varied as the landscape, a fact which has brought special praise to winemaking in the Lowlands throughout the centuries. The wealth of varietals is without a doubt due to the climatic conditions which are especially favourable to the grapes. The wide variety of planting locations and grape varieties and the expert management of the proprietor, Helmuth Zemmer, with his sons at his side, result in a broad range of full-bodied red wines and a diverse palette of top-cru white wines.
