Producer Mezzacorona is a driving force behind the quality of Trentino wines with
a state-of-the-art winery handling estate-grown fruit from the company’s
extensive vineyard holdings in the heart of the Dolomites. The fifteenthcentury
Castel Firmian overlooks the Rotaliano plain in Trentino, and
the wines named after it also give an overview of the region, with both
international and local varieties on offer, all crisp and expressive.
Vineyard Each variety used for Castel Firmian is planted on sites with a particular
affinity to it – in this case the hills running along the Adige river, where the
high temperature variation ensures excellent aromatics.
Winery Following a brief period of skin contact, the wine fermented at 16-18ºC
in temperature-controlled tanks.
Taste A fresh, invigorating nose of cut grass, elderflower and currant leaf leads
to a dry, citrussy, but still quite rounded palate. This roundness alongside
a delicately mineral finish is typical Trentino - this is an excellent marriage
of grape variety and location.
