Selection – Flowers
Sauvignon Alto Adige – Südtirol
“Flowers” is the name chosen to represent the best selections of Von Blumen’s project. Under “Flowers” range there will be wines that permitted us to select, in particular years and within our vineyards, some small blocks of outstanding vines. Each parcel is vinified separately and has undergone a long and distinct ageing period. Equally different is the label and the bottle shape, in order to create a specific and complementary trait with classic Von Blumen range of wines.
