A grape with small berries that has been cultivated in South Tyrol for decades, and which prevails in an aristocratic red wine. With its strong flowery bouquet, velvety finish and fine tannic quality, this wine is perfectly suitable as an accompaniment to meat dishes.
Color: sparkling straw yellow. Smell: The multifaceted aroma of this wine derives a combination of ripe fruit, including honeydew melon, white peach, pear and Golden Delicious apple, together with the aromas of quince jelly and dried fruit such as pear, orange and pineapple, on the one hand, and graphite notes and a hint of jasmine with a mineral touch on the other. Taste: The interplay of fruity aromatic and salty components is repeated on the palate, where the soft and creamy elements gain greater strength in a wine with a lingering, firmly minerally and spicy character on the aftertaste.
This "Hunter's tea" is made with selected raw materials, following an ancient family recipe. For cold days: add three parts of boiling water to one part of Hunter's Tea and the magic drink is ready. It warms you up and is good.
The Pinot Grigio is a fullbodied white wine which is full of extracts. It has a straw yellow colour, it smells flowery, the taste is pleasantly soft. Once it has ripened, you can taste hints of walnuts and honey.
