The grapes of the Trentino Marzemino Selezione Verdini Battistotti are grown in the Municipality of Aldeno on deep and poorly skeletal soil. The harvest is manual with selection in the vineyard; the partially dried grapes (35/40 days) lose 15% of water, are pressed without stalks and fermented in special tanks (25Hl) prepared for the submerged cap. Once the fermentation started, the base Marzemino was added a little at a time. The Trentino Marzemino DOC “Selezione Verdini” Battistotti ages in steel tanks and then matures in glass.
NOTES: this wine is part of the “Vini dell’Angelo” prefilossera Trentino vineyard recovery project
After years of family winemaking tradition, the Battistotti wine family (Elio, Luciano and Enzo, under the supervision of father Riccardo), decided to become part of a wider community of winemakers, as a conferring partner of the grapes. It is a historic company, the Società Agricoltori della Vallagarina (SAV), the largest cooperative company in Vallagarina founded in 1908. This company will continue with the same passion and professionalism to take the road taken by Luciano, the family’s Oenologist, guaranteeing the care and maintenance of the great family winemaking tradition of Battistotti.
