Alto Adige DOC

Cabernet Merlot Riserva
Sanct Valentin


Cabernet and Merlot are appreciated all over the world as varieties of the highest quality. Only very sunny vineyards in the winery’s catchment area have been chosen for production of the Sanct Valentin Cabernet Merlot. With an extremely low yield and dedicated vinification process. The Sanct Valentin Cabernet Merlot, produced since 2013, is an excellent red, a complex wine with soft tannins. It’s the only cuvée of the Sanct Valentin line.
