VIGNA CANTANGHEL PINOT NERO

“To Say Maso Cantanghel is to say Pinot Nero. Finesse and elegance, minerality and fruity notes, passion and complexity. A wine that I like to open with friends, with the real ones. Simply saying, or rather singing, with the words of Frank Sinatra: «You make me feel so young,| You make me feel like spring has sprung. | And every time I see you grin | I’m such a happy individual.»”

 

 

 

 

FROM THE VINEYARD…

 

This Pinot Nero comes from a single vineyard called Vigna Cantanghel situated at an altitude of 500 m a.s.l. in the municipality of Civezzano on the foothills of Lagorai chain. The vineyard, isolated on a ridge of rock and bordered by a very old typical dry stone wall, overlooks the river Fersina. The southern exposure, the perfect microclimate, the constitution of the soil and the low yield per hectare (50 q/ha) are essential in creating an unique wine in Trentino.

The soil is mainly composed of limestones and clayes. The high permeability allows water to move rapidly that is also favored by the slope of the hill.

The average age of vines, grown on the guyot system, is around 25 years.

Harvest by hand with collection in cases, after a thorough selection, about at the end of September.
