The story of the Endrizzi estate began in 1885. The philosophy of the owners, Paolo and Christine Endrici, is based on simple principles: understanding that the wine is the end result of long processes during which environmentally-minded agriculture takes centre stage. With this in mind, the estate has banned the use of chemical treatments on the estate and has reduced added sulphites in the wine. All of these measures are reasons why wines by Endrizzi are so renowned. Indeed, these sublime Italian wines stand out for their unique character, representative of the terroir of origin from which they were borne and which bear the Endrizzi label.
Considered as one of the oldest estates in Trentin, Endrizzi enjoys an enchanting location in the south of the Alps, at the crossroads between a warm, Mediterranean climate and a cooler, continental climate. The vineyards of Pian Di Castello, Masetto and Kinderleit are all located near the village of San Michele all’Adage, at the heart of Adige in Italy.
Gran Masetto 2015 is borne from old vines from vineyards located in the municipalities of Mezzolombardo and Mezzocorona. There, the thirty plots of the estate enjoy an exceptional terroir.
Winemaking and ageing
After the manual harvests, during which the best berries are selected, the grapes are taken to the cellar. After destemming and for around three months, the grapes are dried and lose nearly 35% of their weight to achieve a perfect level of concentration in sugar. They are then put in the cold and fermented for around 10 days at 10°C. Fermentation lasts for 30 days on average. The wine continues its fermentation in small French oak barrels. The wine ages in barrels for 20 months before spending 6 additional months in bottle.
Gran Masetto 2015 is made up of 100% Teroldego.
Gran Masetto 2015 presents a beautifully deep and pretty ruby red, which reveals a dense and ripe character.
