Sylvaner
sylvaner
In Alto Adige, Sylvaner is planted almost exclusively in the Isarco Valley, the gateway to the Dolomites, where it primarily appreciates the cool terraced slopes from 500 to 700 m. (1,600 to 2,300 ft.) which are nevertheless bathed in sunshine. At these elevations, the variety develops both sufficient body and a robust acidity. An earthy, mineral scent is typical of Sylvaner, accompanied by aromas of fresh herbs or hay.
