Goldtraminer Holunder Dolomiti IGT
Winemaker’s note: The "Gold" adds a powerful modern charge to this "Traminer", usually considered an irrelevant wine. Gold Traminer is instead an innovative wine, obtained by crossing the Traminer vine with the Tuscan Trebbiano. In doing so a new variety was created in the mid-1950s by Rebo Rigotti, a Trentino geneticist, one of the most brilliant vinicultural researcher known internationally. The name Holunder (elder flowers) is inspired by the German language which is spoken in the Valle d'Adige, where infact numerous elder flowers encircle in a fragrant embrace the cultivated basaltic slope of Reviano, the sunny side of the Destra Adige, above Isera (Trento).
