Grape Variety: Moscato Rosa - Rosenmuskateller, a variety of Muscat which takes its name its scent and flavour of roses; vertical espalier-trellised vines grown at a density of approx. 5.000 plants per hectare.
Location: Selected vineyards at an altitude of 450 metres a.s.l.. Soils are medium-structured, morainal, dry, sandy and gravely. The microclimate is cool, with striking contrasts between day and night time temperatures.
Winemaking: This wine is produced following two different techniques. One part of the grapes is picked later than usual (late harvest), goes through a cold soaking and the alcoholic fermentation. The second part, instead, is harvested in small boxes and left to dry in a ventilated room (appassimento method) until a certain level of sugar is reached. After fermentation the two parts will be blended in together and the final cuvee will age in stainless steel tanks for a couple of months (before bottling).

BERNARDI bacon - the time to the maturity is esteemed to us
The St. Valentin Comtess' is an especially rare speciality of the winery. A dessert wine of irresistible type, complexity and finesse. After a late harvest (mid-November) Gewürztraminer grapes are mixed with those of Riesling, Sauvignon and dried in wooden crates for several weeks, then they are pressed and transferred to a steel casket for maturation. Comtess' is characterised by a multiface - ted bouquet with aromas reminiscent of roses, cinamon and nutmeg. The young, fresh fragrances intensify in their complexity when correctly matured in the bottle, gradually assuming discrete hints of honey. An elegantly tasteful dessert wine with a full-bodied, fresh acidity which pairs harmoniously with the matching residual sweetness. It unleashes on the palate a delicate symphony of impressions and experiences, which leave behind a lasting effect. A wine with a future, which can be left to mature at the winery for several years without further ado.
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.
