Goldtraminer Vendemmia Tardiva “Gold Soliva” 2012 – Pravis
Gold foil, a concentrate of sweetness; good alcohol content, juicy, with flavors reminiscent of peach jam, apricot and a round hint of candied fruit.
The Goldtraminer Vendemmia Tardiva Gold Soliva Pravis grapes are grown in the Palade di Lasino area at an altitude of 460 meters on a fine alluvial fan soil. A late harvest of a grape variety, made in the 1950s by Rebo Rigotti, Trentino vineyard experimenter, bunches left in the plant without fearing autumn frosts, evaluating only and exclusively the course of the year and the concentration of sugars in the grains exposed to the sun. After a long withering in the plant, the grapes are gently pressed. The wine is made in oak barrels, where the Goldtraminer Vendemmia Tardiva “Gold Soliva” Pravis is aged for about 3 years.
The Pravis winery is completely excavated underground and rises into sight, completely surrounded by calcareous rocks and exposed to the sun and the wind that warms our entire valley.
Seated at the foot of Castel Madruzzo, Pravis winery is intended to be a new and simple symbol of the hardworking peasant culture, a symbol of the territory, to sanctify the identity of the community but above all of our philosophy of producing wines.
Every phase of the process of transforming grapes into wine at Pravis respects a natural idea of winemaking. Using the least technology possible: our grapes, once pressed, flow with gravity into fermentation tanks, then into barrels, then finally into containers for pre-bottling with patience allowing the natural elements of the wine to aid our intuition in the winery.
