Carlotto

The winery "Ferruccio Carlotto" is located in the municipality of Auer (Ora) in the area of South Tyrol (Alto Adige) in the Italian region of Trentino-South Tyrol. Umberto Carlotto began to cultivate vines in 1940 as a sharecropper (mezzadro) on the estate of the castle farm near the Caldif ruins in Mazon, where he worked the vineyards for 50 years together with his brother and later also with his son Ferruccio. Ferruccio Carlotto became self-employed in 2000. His daughter Michela is responsible for the cellar and vinification. The vineyards comprise 1.6 hectares of vineyards in Mazzon (mainly Pinot Noir and some Vernatsch), and just under one hectare in Auer (Lagrein). The wines are produced as DOC Südtiroler. After the alcoholic fermentation, the malolactic fermentation takes place in new and used barriques as well as in large wooden barrels, where the 12-month maturing process also takes place. This is followed by levelling in steel tanks and large wooden barrels, followed by a further six months of ageing and then bottling. Only after several months of storage are the wines marketed. Around 20,000 bottles of wine are produced annually. The winery is a member of Freie Weinbauern Südtirol.
