Alto Adige Gewürztraminer DOC 2022

  • Tasting notes

    Full yellow in colour; a deliciously intensely aromatic and floral bouquet with hints of honey and ginger and a flavour of lychees; full-bodied, luscious but dry, the opulence cut by vibrant, firm acidity.

    Cellaring potential: 6-8 years.

    The story of Lafóa:
