flowery, light scent reminiscent of violets, full velvety taste
Ruby red in colour with purple reflections, this wine the Lake Caldaro region has delicate aromas reminiscent of violets and a hint of bitter almonds. With its fruity and balanced taste, it is an ideal accompaniment to appetisers, country-style snacks and hearty home cooking, yet also to the classic pizza or meat and poultry dishes. This wine should be served and drunk slightly chilled yet not cold.
The Südtiroler Edelvernatsch, also known as Schiava, is a light-bodied wine, whose color is light ruby to deep ruby red. It is pleasant and fruity on the palate, often with a touch of bitter almonds.
Our Golden Muscat is a fine, aromatic dessert wine with a yellow to golden color. Pleasant aromas of musk roses overlay a markedly sweet structure. Ethereal essences of citrus fruits and baked apples arise as the wine opens. This dessert wine is an ideal partner to beignets, strudel and cake, and, in its drier embodiment, as an aperitif.
The color of rubies, its interesting bouquet of violets paired with a round, harmonious taste of bitter almonds, combine to make this wine an unusually sophisticated representative of its kind.
