Gewurztraminer, there are only a few grapes on this vine. You would like more but it’s so precious that you drink little, you sip it like gold.

Gewurztraminer

The aromatic Traminer is presumably a vine resulting from the domestication of wild vines that grew near the river Reno. There are several variants in which the colour of the berries varies from white to deep red. It has small and squat clusters, conical in shape with one or two wings, compact.

The grape is medium, slightly elongated, with a thick and consistent skin. The pulp has an aromatic flavour reminiscent of rose.

In Italy Traminer is widespread in Trentino-Alto Adige and Friuli-Venezia Giulia. It is a vine that prefers rather cold climates for its remarkable aromatic and sugary note. For these reasons, Borgo dei Posseri finds the most favourable environmental conditions.
