This Pinot Bianco is without a doubt the star amongst the wines of the St. Michael-Eppan cooperative winery. It is simply the wine to express most convincingly the quality potential South Tyrolean white wine and the philosophy behind the production methods used in winery. A straw colour with green lustre, it reveals a broad palette of scents, in particular apple, apricot, pear and a slight cedar wood fragrance. With its velvety smoothness and full-bodied acidity which underscore its strength and grandeur, this wine is a delight on the palate. A complete wine you don't come across every day, to satisfy many demands made by sophisticated cuisine.
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.
