Manni Nössing is the star producer in this part of Alto Adige. The estate is fairly young, but his produce has already achieved world acclaim. Manni is a humble man, who always let his wines do the talking. And they sure speak out loudly.
The Isacra Valley is unique in that sense that its surrounded by mountains, creating almost desert-like growing condition on the valley floor. Manni's vineyards, climbing up to 800 m.a.s.l see serious temperature fluctuations from day to night, which allow his grapes to fully ripe, yet retain lofty amounts of acidity.
The philosophy here is to capture the essence of these unique terrassed vineyards. Low yielding vines create dense fruit, but the cool autumn weather also allows acidity to shine brightly.
Vinification is done is stainless steel, with a few Acacia barrels in use as well. Wines are aged on the lees until bottling, usually 8-9 months after harvest. Natural yeasts, light filtration and blocked MF.
