The name L’Ora is dedicated to the Aura Aurea, the “golden breeze” blowing form lake Garda. This white wine, invitingly golden itself, is the product of deeply rooted Trentino oenological traditions. Autoctonous Nosiola grapes are dried on grates before vinification, then the wine is aged in small Acacia wood barrels. This process yields rich, honeyed hues and a full aromatic patrimony including fresh, wild hazelnuts and budding white grapevine flowers. On the palate it is dense and smooth yet balanced against a firm acidity and lively mineral quality.
