The Pinot Bianco - the most important and typical of all the South Tyrolean grape varieties - has now been promoted to the top of the St. Valentin range. The St. Valentin has a clear, straw colour with slightly green reflections. It smells delightfully of intensive and typical fruit aromas: ripe app - les and pears combined with melons and a trace of a fine vanilla fragrance. Concentrated and with a wonderful strength and richness, refined and clear in its way, its structure appears refresh- ing despiete the maturation in wood: the Pinot Bianco St. Valentin is a wine which is set to become a real talking point.
Colour: Bright, deep yellow; Nose: A complex interplay of floral and fruit aromas; Flavour: The fruit aromas follow through on to the palate, supported by richness, concentration, firm but mild acidity with a hint of vanilla. Notes: An exciting wine which bodes well for the future
This Pinot Grigio is pale yellow to sandy in color and subtle in its bouquet, with fruity notes of pears and candied furits. The eloquent, harmonious body emphasizes its dry, full-bodied taste and round finish.
