Lagrein Girlan 2022
Born on sandy, warm and deep soils of the Bassa Atesina, where it finds optimal conditions and great diffusion. Manual harvest, de-stemming and fermentation at controlled temperature in steel tanks. The malolactic fermentation is left to develop and then aged in large oak barrels and cement tanks for at least 8 months.
The company was founded by Girlan in 1923 by 23 winemakers. It now has 200 members for a total of 220 hectares. Girlan / Cornaiano is a famous wine village, known since 1085, with vineyards from 250m to 550m slm, which are different for composition, land and exposure, which allows to cultivate local and international varieties. The human factor for the Girlan winery is paramount. All the members are coordinated by Gerhard Kofler. The exchange of knowledge and experience between the various components is always in vivo and is a growing opportunity for constant quality research. In 2010, the cellar was completely remodeled, always inside the historic farm, to handle every passage of the vine without mechanical means but only by gravity. The will is to re-evaluate local grapes and at the same time offer wines of quality obtained by international grapes, respecting the territory and the times of nature.
there are 5 terroirs from which the grapes come: Cornaiano (Girlan), Gschleier, Plattenriegl, Mintiggl, Mazzon.
