Wine

 

 

The Kornell assortment of white wines includes Pinot Bianco, Sauvignon Blanc and Gewürztraminer, with Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon and Lagrein making up the reds. Following controlled fermentation in steel vats, they spend between 14 and 18 months aging in barriques and oak barrels and another ten months maturing in bottles.

The family vineyards on the estate in Settequerce, at Appiano Monte and Gries near Bolzano provide the foundation for healthy grapes. The vines grow at between 270 and 550 meters above sea-level where – with more than 2,100 annual hours of sunshine and cool nights – they find optimum conditions for producing fully mature grapes.

They grow on eroded quartz-bearing porphyry soils in Settequerce and calcareous clay soils at Appiano Monte. Add to that the south- to southwest-facing slopes, and you have ideal conditions for fine wines.
