Nosiola Trentino DOC
Grape Varieties100% Nosiola
AppellationNosiola Trentino DOC
DescriptionClassic indigenous white grape variety that has been cultivated for centuries in Trentino's Valley of the Lakes (where they are left to wither over a long period to produce the famous Vino Santo) and on the lower hills of the Cembra Valley (in the area of Pressano). To taste Nosiola is to taste a piece of northern Italian history. The grape probably owes its name to the Italian word for hazelnut (nocciola), which may be a reference to either the hazelnut aroma note the wine shows or to the light (instead of dark) brown color the raisined Nosiola grapes turn when they are very mature. It is a rustic drought-resistant vine that grows best on a well-ventilated hill-side, on grey loam rock soil. It dislikes rain, especially during the flowering period.
Grapes for Bottega Vinaia Nosiola come from the Valley of Lakes on the slopes of the Calavino mountains, where there is a large difference between day and night temperatures, which produces crisp, aromatic wines.
VinificationAfter careful selection of the bunches, a soft crushing is carried out. The resulting juice is fermented at a controlled temperature. Refining in stainless steel follows for four months, after which it is bottled cold-sterile.
