Light green lustre run through the straw colour of this wine whose aroma is rich in fruits, the most striking of which are pears. An excellent acidity balance gives this wine strength and structure. It is dry and smooth on the palate, and leaves a long, pleasant aftertaste. The Pinot Grigio goes well with many dishes, especially lighter foods, to which it is an excellent accompaniment. It is served chilled and also bestows a fine taste following longer ageing.
A wine with international style, produced only in good years the best grapes. This vouches for its excellent reputation. The wine has a gold-yellow colour, with a pronounced vanilla tone that arises its maturation in small oak casks and strong aromas of ripe fruits, this Chardonnay also establishes itself on the palate, strong and rich, with a pleasant fullness of body. Its refinement is especially distinguished and sets it apart. A Chardonnay for those who are seeking an especially unique wine, to enjoy either by itself or as companion to refined dishes of sophisticated cuisines, and one which will turn into an even more special experience after several years of additional maturation in the bottle.
The Pinot Bianco - the most important and typical of all the South Tyrolean grape varieties - has now been promoted to the top of the St. Valentin range. The St. Valentin has a clear, straw colour with slightly green reflections. It smells delightfully of intensive and typical fruit aromas: ripe app - les and pears combined with melons and a trace of a fine vanilla fragrance. Concentrated and with a wonderful strength and richness, refined and clear in its way, its structure appears refresh- ing despiete the maturation in wood: the Pinot Bianco St. Valentin is a wine which is set to become a real talking point.
