The Pinot Bianco vines for the Vorberg white wine grow in the vineyards of the cooperative on the mountain slopes around Terlano in coarse grains of silicious stone and sand. The vineyards are located at between 250 and 900 meters above sea-level on a bed of striking red porphyry, an igneous rock with large mineral inclusions known as quartz porphyry in geological terminology. This terroir is home to salty wines with a fine tension to intrigue the palate plus outstanding longevity. The south-facing slopes receive maximum sunshine. Under these almost Mediterranean conditions the winery makes a series of world class wines.
This is a winery dedicated to the highest level of quality in wine production. The grapes were manually harvested followed by a careful selection of the grapes. The whole clusters were gently pressed and the must clarified by natural sedimentation; slow fermentation at a controlled temperature in big oak barrels (30 hl); malolactic fermentation and ageing on the lees in traditional wooden barrels for 12 months.
This is a wine that will develop and improve by cellaring for a few years.
Longevity 10-15 years.
