Typical South Tyrolean red wine made the Schiava grape, with a strong ruby to garnet red colour. Its bouquet is characterised by a broad palette as fruity aromas, forest fruits through to cherries, which then open up and intensify on the palate. Delicate and yet at the same time with a strong structure, this St. Magdalener is a pleasant, tempting wine. It goes especially well with roasts, game and spicy cheeses. It gains in strength and intensity when aged in the cellar.
This Chardonnay has a vivid stramineous color with greenish glimmer. The bouquet reminds of exotic fruits like banana, pineapple and matura apple. In the mouth it is harmonic, fresh and very soft with a persistent finish
