The name 'Arenis' comes from Italian "arenaria rossa", or red sandstone. This rock lends the sandy and loamy soils of the eastern-facing vineyards their striking color. The vineyards between 300 and 400m a.s.l. in the south of Alto Adige are not only considered the ideal terroir, but also the native habitat of the Gewürztraminer grape with its demanding site requirements. Due to the heavily reduced yield of the vines, Arenis is very complex in aromas: roses, lychee, jasmine and exotic spices. A decisive mineral backbone gives the full-bodied wine prolonged freshness. Arenis is expressive yet highly drinkable and maintains the perfect balance between intensity and elegance.
