Weinegg is on the very top of our range. It is named after the castle of Weineck, which was situated on the Virgl Mountain above Bolzano until the beginning of the 12th century. Weinegg is a blend of Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot and Lagrein, whereby only grapes the best vines with an age minimum of 15 years are chosen.
The harvest usually takes place at the end of October: It is exactly in these those days, that the Cabernet reaches is its full ripeness, Lagrein and Merlot are somewhat overripe and have slightly dried berries. Thanks to this, the wine has a special glaze and a particularly delicate bunch of flavours.
The elevation takes place in small and medium oak barrels (2-5hl), 50-80% of which are new. Weinegg is only produced in exceptional years: 2016, 2006 and 2007, to mention the last three vintages.
Produced with Aglianico grapes Taurasi, Pietradefusi and S.Angelo all'Esca, it has a vivid ruby red with darker red shimmer, fragrant with the aromas of wild cherries, cinnamon, nutmeg, vanilla and anice.
This youthful fresh wine makes a very elegant impression. Greenish-yellow to bright yellow colour with delicate fruity and floreal aromas toghether with mature apples prevalent in the bouquet. Its lively style combined with a balanced acidity accompanies this wine through its harmonious finish. Good accompainment with all sort of appetizers, as well as asparagus dishes, seafood, pork or veal.
Pale straw yellow with green highlights. Fresh, lively and owerflowing with tropical aromas such as pineapple, passionfruit and mango. The fresh, mouthfilling flavours are backed by a fine acidity giving it length and perfect balance. This wine is an excellent accompainment to asparagus, seafood and warm starters.
One of the traditional South Tyrolean dishes are the bacon dumplings, hand made by the butcher's shop Villgrater in Sexten/Sesto.
