Hartmann Dona Blanc Mitterberg White IGT 2019
DONÀ BLANC is a cuvée composed of 60 percent Pinot Blanc and 40 percent Chardonnay. Two varieties that have been cultivated in South Tyrol for more than 100 years and that here, in the right terroirs, manage to give rise to wines with a special charm. Wines with ripe fruit, soft body and a minerality that comes to the fore after a few years of aging.
The grapes for DONÀ BLANC come from ancient vines located on two different soils, one light and porphyritic, with high mineral content, the other consistent, clay and limestone.
The aromatic grapes that have reached full ripeness are carefully and gently crushed, and their juice is placed to ferment in wooden barrels. Natural malolactic fermentation follows. Maturation on the lees for 23 months in barrels and bottle aging for 2 years give DONÀ BLANC roundness and softness, allowing it to fully develop its savory and mineral character.
