The grapes of Trentino Merlot Battistotti are grown in the municipality of Nomi on clayey, deep, heavy and skeleton-free soil. The harvest is manual in a box with selection in the vineyard. The grapes pressed and de-stemmed, are fermented in cement tanks with continuous pumping over. The temperature is around 26 – 27 °, the permanence of the must with the skins is 7 – 8 days. It is poured very early and after malolactic fermentation, it is filtered. Trentino Merlot DOC Battistoni ages in steel than in glass.
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.
