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 final product of a succession of 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.
Teroldego Riserva 2014 is borne from old vines cultivated on gravel-influenced lands covered by a layer of fertile soil. The terroir benefits from a microclimate with good thermal contrasts between night and day.
Winemaking and ageing
After the manual harvests, during which the best berries are selected, the grapes are taken to the cellar to begin a greatly precise vinification process. To begin with, the berries ferment at regulated temperatures for 10 days. Following this, malolactic fermentation and ageing in oak barrels is carried out.
