Vitas Traminer Aromatico 2015

ID No: 444421
Country:Italy
Region:Friuli
Grape Type:Traminer Aromatico
Winery:Vitas
Product Description

Intense and persistent bouquet, delicate and aromatic with a pleasant background note of sweet spices. Dry and aromatic palate, tasty and fragrant with a velvety consistency.

Hand harvesting during the cool morning hours to maximize aroma preservation. Whole-cluster pressing to avoid juice oxidation and separation of juice fractions according to different pressure gradients, followed by a 36-48 hours cold settling at 12°C. The juice is inoculated with selected yeast strains and fermented at 18°C. The wine remains for several months in tank on its lees, which are periodically stirred.

Pairs with fish, shellfish, asparagus and pumpkin dishes, fresh cheese.

Winery: Vitas

The Vitas Estate
The winery has been in the family since 1935, for four generations. It is located in the wine-producing area of DOC Friuli Aquileia, on a clayey-marly and sandy-calcareous soil (the so-called Magredi), one of the ingredients which, together with the influence of the sea, a friendly sun, an average temperature of 14° and the absence of night frosts, create a perfect microclimate for vine-growing.
