Succulent, rich, full-bodied and zestful with velvety tannins, an aroma and flavour reminiscent of woodland berry fruits. Lagrein is an eminently delicious wine and a worthy ambassador for South Tyrol's vinous culture. With braised and roasted red meats, a perfect partner for game and cheese.
Satin red with garnet reflexes. The bouquet is complex reminiscent of strawberry and raspberry with hints of liquorice, while on the palate it is enveloping, succulent with assertive but mellow tannins.
Very deep and dark ruby in colour, only beginning to show signs of maturity. Lovely blackberry nose mingled with a hint of new oak. Sweet and generous, rich and concentrated on the palate, masses of fruit with enough tannin and acidity to balance, elegant finish.
The St. Valentin Comtess' is an especially rare speciality of the winery. A dessert wine of irresistible type, complexity and finesse. After a late harvest (mid-November) Gewürztraminer grapes are mixed with those of Riesling, Sauvignon and dried in wooden crates for several weeks, then they are pressed and transferred to a steel casket for maturation. Comtess' is characterised by a multiface - ted bouquet with aromas reminiscent of roses, cinamon and nutmeg. The young, fresh fragrances intensify in their complexity when correctly matured in the bottle, gradually assuming discrete hints of honey. An elegantly tasteful dessert wine with a full-bodied, fresh acidity which pairs harmoniously with the matching residual sweetness. It unleashes on the palate a delicate symphony of impressions and experiences, which leave behind a lasting effect. A wine with a future, which can be left to mature at the winery for several years without further ado.
