Pinot Blanc

Pinot Blanc has always been a source of ample discussion. It is now well established that it is (as well as the Pinot Grigio) of a genetic variant of Pinot Noir, it has long been confused with the Chardonnay (of which, on the other hand, it has many common characteristics). Up to fifteen years ago in Italy it was often referred to as Pinot-Chardonnay and in the years following the phylloxera often in northern Italy the two varieties were replanted one in place of the other or together. The vine is native to Germany; in Alsace it achieves the best qualitative results, but it has also been "exported" to the United States, Latin America and Australia. In Italy it originally found its suitable climate in Friuli, Lombardy, Trentino and Alto Adige. Its diffusion in Tuscany dates back to the eighteenth century, when the Lorena, grand dukes of Tuscany, favored its cultivation. In Italy the most valuable Pinot white wines come from some areas of Friuli and Alto Adige. In these areas particularly suited to the vine, yields per hectare are very low and this makes it possible to produce a very structured, soft and fat white wine, which is also suitable for aging in barriques and lends itself to being aged. Pinot bianco is particularly suitable for being sparkling wine and therefore becomes part of the cuveé of the best Italian sparkling wines from Friuli, Trentino and Franciacorta.

Mitterberg 'Donà Blanc' by Hartmann Donà is a cuvée made up of 60% Pinot Blanc and 40% Chardonnay. These two varieties have been cultivated in South Tyrol for over 100 years and here, in suitable terroirs, they can produce wines of special charm. Wines obtained from ripe fruit, with soft body and a minerality that transpires clearly after a few years ageing. The grapes come from old vines and when fully ripe, are subjected to careful and gentle pressing and their juice is left to ferment in wooden barrels. This is followed by the natural malolactic fermentation. The refining on lees for 23 months in the barrels and a 2-years bottle ageing give the Donà Blanc roundness and softness, allowing it develop to the full its sapid and well mineralized character.
