The fact that we have what it takes to produce truly great red wines have been proven by our winemaker in the form of this vintage Cabernet, which is part of the St. Valentin range. Delicately matured in small oak casks, this Cabernet comes in a mature ruby colour. Its dense, aromatic diversity is characterised by fruity aromas, ripe wild berries, vanilla and liquorice. Smooth, velvety tannins, delicate scents of cocoa and stewed fruits combined with a characteristic structure and density delight the palate and promise a variety of surprises and a pleasant taste. Proper ageing in the bottle allows this still young wine to intensify its pronounced complexity even further. The Cabernet St. Valentin is an excellent accompaniment to strong red meat dishes the barbeque, to game and lamb and to piquant varieties of cheese.

A wine that enchants with its name alone. A white wine the highest level of winery techniques which permits no errors. The result of a harvest that qualitatively and quantitatively allows no compromises. A Sauvignon of light, greenish colour, with aromas of wild elder blossoms and figs, gently spicy, convincing on the palate, fine, dry, balanced, and long lasting. A wine which in its comple - teness radiates harmony and strength, fullness and elegance. An ideal aperitif and accompaniment to many appetizers, especially vegetables, fish dishes, and cheeses.
Villa Nigra is the Latin name fort he Scharzhaus ("Black House") estate, a vineyard as if made for producing fine Pinto Noir of top international standing. The strongly contrasting temperatures between day and night time enables Pinot grapes to develop their intense classic varietal character, reminiscent of raspberry, morello cherry and blackberry. An elegantly-structured wine, slender with smooth ripe tannins on the finish
The Roman settler and winegrower Cornelius settled in the Colterenzio area around 15 BC, and founded his Cornelianum wine estate, form which the name Cornaiano developed. He laid the foundations for our present-day wine culture. Cornelius is an elegant Bordeaux blend of Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot.
The Anticus is cultivated on steep sunny slopes around Magrè and it ages for 20 months in small durmast barriques. The ripened wild fruit taste combined with the soft Merlot and the strong Cabernet give an aromatic character to this wine.
Light green lustre run through the straw colour of this wine whose aroma is rich in fruits, the most striking of which are pears. An excellent acidity balance gives this wine strength and structure. It is dry and smooth on the palate, and leaves a long, pleasant aftertaste. The Pinot Grigio goes well with many dishes, especially lighter foods, to which it is an excellent accompaniment. It is served chilled and also bestows a fine taste following longer ageing.
