Label: it is the reproduction of a xylography performed by Remo Wolf, famous artist of Trento. On the left the attractive castle of Mezzocorona, on the right, the emblem of the magnificent nature of these mountains, the Sassolungo of the Val Gardena.
At the centre a marvellous bunch of grapes stands out, of which every grape is a small sun. A sun that is also a monument of union between the Val Gardena and the Piana Rotaliana and element of vivification of the fruit from which this excellent white wine is obtained
Name: it derives from the name of the stream that flows beside the vineyard, the Ri del Maerla.
Vineyard: the cultivation system is the traditional pergola of Trento. However, a short and discreet pruning and a thinning of the bunches of grapes halve the production which would otherwise flourish
