Description

Epokale, in name and in fact, is a nectar of the past. It recalls the wines of the Middle Ages with its significant sugar residue, which places it in the Spätlese category, the product of an ancient South Tyrolean technique.

The result of a selection of grapes from the two oldest vineyards of Cantina Tramin, located near the famous Nussbaumer farm, the Epokale is vinified with short maceration on the skins and ages in steel for about eight months on its own yeasts before being transferred to the tunnels of the Schneeberg mine.

Let’s picture it resting in its bottle for seven years, in the darkness of a cave that is four kilometres long, located at an altitude of 2,000 metres and 450 metres under the mountain, conditions that create a constant temperature of 11 degrees and 90% humidity.

This process gives it its well-known, intense golden colour, while the long refinement in the bottle allows it to develop spicy aromas with notes of cinnamon and ginger that take over from the basic hint of ripe exotic fruit. The broad and explosive sweetness that envelops the palate is never cloying, but rather strikes a surprising balance between freshness and elegance.

A unique wine across genres, with the 2009 vintage it became the first Italian white to garner 100/100 from Monica Larner, the Italian representative for Wine Advocate (Robert Parker). This is made all the more significant by the fact that it is the product of a cooperative.

In its 2013 version it wins first place on the podium in the ranking drawn up by German magazine Weinwirtschaft: best Italian wine for tasting.

With only 1,200 bottles a year produced, its appeal is further intensified.
