LINE

Classic

This line represents typical South Tyrolean white and red wines, vinified in the traditional method and reflecting our particular microclimate and our sites. After a careful manual harvest, the grapes are vinified in steel tanks, except for the reds. Varietal typicality, pure aromas and lighter drinking enjoyment are the distinguishing characteristics of this line. They promise honest and authentic pleasure with great value for money.

Alto Adige DOC

Santa Maddalena

2019

This legendary South Tyrolean red wine is known as “The Queen of Schiava”. The St. Magdalena steep slopes near Bolzano boast an ideal microclimate that is ideal for an indiginous grape variety that fully unravels a unique and intense fruity aroma. With a structure that is delicate yet at the same time strong, this Santa Maddalena is an elegant and fine wine.
