The QR-Code and its practical application in wine labelling: how to supply valuable information to wine lovers

WINECODE is a new mobile coding system dedicated to the winelovers, which we enthusiastically adopted, thinking that it will help us to be easily reached by our friends and customers with a simple click of their mobile phones. Through WINECODE we can provide information on our wines, food pairing suggestions, a phototour of the vineyards and the winery … and much more!

On the back labels of our wines’ bottles you will find a small square code, called matrix code, which is the gate to the WINECODE world.

It is very simple to use the WINECODE.
All you need is a last generation cell phone (i-phone o any other smart-phone) with photocamera. Get and install the software, which you can easily download from www.i-nigma.mobi, focus the matrix code and you will enter a special website where you can get all information about us, our wines and tastings in five languages.

In our WINECODE spot you will find:

- the technical wine slides with the latest releases,
- short videos in italian and english with wine tastings and food pairings,
- a texting system to get in touch with the winery,
- an interactive map that will drive you to the winery using your car GPS.

An event section is currently updated to provide information on tastings, shows and events regarding our wines all over the world.

You can start with the matrix code above… and I am looking forward to receiving your comments!

WINEMAKING

The grapes are handpicked the first half of September, when they are fully ripe. The traditional pruning system - called "a pezzo e spalla" - and the age of the vines, allow slow constant ripening cycles and a great aromatic concentration.

The fermentation is spontaneous, with 2 days skin contact. After soft pressing, the fermentation continues for 8 days in steel tanks. After malolactic is completed, the wine refines on fine lees for about 4 months and is then racked into one single oak barrel, where it ages in perpetuum with its sediment.

The wine is bottled directly from the barrel no more than 2-3 times every decade.

TASTING NOTES

Altrimenti has a bright amber color, enlivened by golden hues. Its nose is predominantly tertiary, where fruity notes of apricot and ripe figs blend onto an intense and aromatic herbal background, enriched by roasted and dried nuts.

It is dry and full bodied to the palate, with a distinct savory personality that harmoniously meets a tannic finish.

SERVING TEMPERATURE: 54 - 58 °F
Pour Altrimenti in wide glasses, at a fresh but not chilled temperature.
Please avoid freezers and blast chillers, as well as a prolonged time in your home refrigerator: this wine is not filtered nor fined, and any temperature below 40 °F will mortify its complex aromas.
