"Zweigelt" Vigneti delle Dolomiti IGT 2020 - Cantina Valle Isarco

The Zweigelt vine represents a small oenological gem. It is a cross-breed created in 1922 at the Federal Institute for Viticulture in Klosterneuburg, Austria. Its "inventor", Professor Fritz Zweigelt, created it by crossing St. Laurent with Blaufränkisch, better known as Franconia. It is currently the most widely cultivated red grape variety in Austria. Its success is mainly due to its good vigour, which guarantees high yields and pleasantly drinkable wines. Suitable for cultivation at medium altitudes, Zweigelt is one of the varieties offered by Cantina Valle Isarco, which processes it in temperature-controlled steel tanks and then matures it in wooden barrels. The result is a fresh, fruity and youthful wine. Characterized by a beautiful full garnet red colour, the nose recalls the delicate scent of cherries and berries. In the mouth it reveals ripe tannins and a slight acidity. Perfect if you want to offer a fresh red wine as an aperitif, perhaps accompanied by a nice board of cold cuts and cheeses, this excellent Zweigelt goes well with first and second courses based on meat. Also excellent with game.

Despite the fact that the Valle Isarco valley has an ancient winemaking tradition, the beautiful cooperative winery was only founded in 1961 by 24 families. Cantina Valle Isarco is the youngest wine cooperative in South Tyrol and today, after more than 60 years, can count on the work of 135 members who cultivate a total of 150 hectares of vineyards in 11 municipalities from Bolzano to the south of Bressanone. The Valle Isarco offers one of the most beautiful natural landscapes in South Tyrol, characterised by majestic mountains, ancient farms, castles, monasteries and villages, magnificent chestnut groves and above all terraced vineyards with their neat stone walls. Here, the vine-dressers carry out 'heroic' work, accustomed as they are to caring for predominantly steep terrain, with plants growing up to 950 metres high. Vineyards that are often tiny in size, but just as often characterised by unique soil and climate conditions. The special microclimate of this area, characterised by hot summer days and cold nights during the harvest period, ensures the production of fresh, fruity and mineral-rich wines. Overall, the Cantina Valle Isarco produces around 950,000 bottles a year, divided between 14 varieties, of which 10 are white and 4 red. The total number of labels is 28, including some very interesting special editions. The winery's "white" vocation is best expressed through the good local grape varieties, such as Kerner, Sylvaner, Grüner Veltliner, Gewürztraminer and, of course, Müller Thurgau.
