Vigna Saosent – Pinot Nero

Trentino DOC

In the middle of Cembra Valley 560 m above sea level, the heart of a small vineyard continues to persevere; here the vines are kissed by the sun year-round and are arranged in a terraced layout to create a spectacular and unique landscape. One of our excellences arises here, the “Vigna di Saosent” Pinot Nero.
The “Ora del Garda” winds that blow in the spring afternoons and climb up the valley, the southern exposure and the loamy and sandy soil rich in stones create the ideal conditions for the cultivation of this great variety that has by now put deep roots in our mountains.
