Lafòa is a white wine from South Tyrol from the prestigious and historic line of the Colterenzio winery.
Grapes grow on sandy and gravelly soil of moraine origin. It yields 45 hl/hectar.
The fully ripe grapes are crushed, briefly left to soak and pressed. The juice is left to decant naturally. Half of the total quality is fermented in stainless steel tanks, the other half in standard oak-casks and barriques.
Only the part vinified in oak is allowed to undergo malolactic fermentation. The final blend is made after the wine has aged for 8 months on its fine lees. Light filtering and bottling follows the former process.
