Pinot Nero Buchholz

Buchholz is the name of a steep single site at an altitude of 440 to 500 meters above the small town of Salorno in the most southern part of South Tyrol. Due to an optimum sun exposure, the grapes on the 25 to 60-year-old vines can ripen slowly and bring out this delicate Pinot Nero.

Perkeo was the court jester and cupbearer of Kurfürst Philip von der Pfalz and responsible for the wine stock. According to legend, little man from Salorno was able to finish a big barrel, which held about 200.000 litres, in one go. But once he got very sick, the doctor advised him to drink a glass of water. After the first sip of water, he has fallen dead according the legend.
