Metodo Classico TrentoDOC

1673 Riserva

Trento DOC

Made with choice Chardonnay grapes, grown in selected upland vineyards of the Cembra Valley, Riserva 1673 is the highly esteemed ambassador of Cesarini Sforza quality. Wide temperature variations from day to night combine with ideal sunshine levels to produce the characteristic and highly prized fruity aromas. The deep, sandy porphyritic soil produces an enviable flavour and a long-lasting minerality. Manual harvesing, transfer of the grapes to small vessels, soft pressing and a precisely controlled production proocess allow us to obtain a unique product with the balance and innate harmony of taste typical of metodo classico Trentodoc. Delicate to the nose and rich on the palate, it is one of the finest wines that Trentino has to offer.
