Color: sparkling straw yellow. Smell: The multifaceted aroma of this wine derives a combination of ripe fruit, including honeydew melon, white peach, pear and Golden Delicious apple, together with the aromas of quince jelly and dried fruit such as pear, orange and pineapple, on the one hand, and graphite notes and a hint of jasmine with a mineral touch on the other. Taste: The interplay of fruity aromatic and salty components is repeated on the palate, where the soft and creamy elements gain greater strength in a wine with a lingering, firmly minerally and spicy character on the aftertaste.
With a brilliant greenish-yellow colour, this wine has an aroma immediately reminiscent of ripe apples. Add to this a broad and mixed palette of fruit aromas, including melon and banana. In the mouth, this Chardonnay is juicy and delicious, with an inviting and lasting constancy. Served chilled, it is an excellent accompaniment to fish dishes and also to many other sophisticated dishes. It can also be served as a refreshing and stimulating aperitif.

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.
A wine that enchants with its name alone. A white wine the highest level of winery techniques which permits no errors. The result of a harvest that qualitatively and quantitatively allows no compromises. A Sauvignon of light, greenish colour, with aromas of wild elder blossoms and figs, gently spicy, convincing on the palate, fine, dry, balanced, and long lasting.

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.
