The intensive scent of red and dark berries as well as violets is typical of our vineyards in Montan. The Blauburgunder the Unterland region comes astonishingly close to some of the "model" wines Burgundy. This red wine develops harmoniously, with a full body and lasting finish. In the glass it gleams with a beautiful dark to ruby red.
It is full ruby in colour with violet reflexes, fresh and intensely fruity on the nose, fragrant with a flavour of woodland berry fruits on the palate and a lightly almondy finish. The wine's succulent, gentle fruity character , soft, unobtrusive tannins and mild supple acidity make it a favourite for social drinking.
The harmonious, soft tannins on the palate and its dark garnet red colour are the main characteristics of this indigenous red wine Lagrein Villa Karneid Castelfeder. With its intese and complex bouqet and fresh parfume of wild berries and violets, the Castelfeder Lagrein Villa Karneid is ideal for red meats and roasts.
