"This Sauvignon Blanc is the perfect companion to asparagus. The grapes are harvested separately and the wine is bottled slightly earlier. The delicate fruit of the bouquet and the fresh aromas create subtle combinations with the taste of the asparagus." Rudi Kofler
Manual harvest and selection of the grapes; gentle whole cluster pressing and clarification of the must by natural sedimentation; slow fermentation at a controlled temperature in stainless steel tanks, aging on the lees in steel tanks for 5-7 months.

This wine once again proves the great potential of the Schiava variety. Bright ruby-red colour, it shows fine friut aromas as well as vinous flavours. With its light and smooth tannin and a pleasant freshness, this well-balanced wine is uncomplicated and easy-drinking and the perfect combination to traditional Speck (a kind of smoked bacon).
The wine is fine and delicate, with an excellent body and structure. It is straw yellow in color. The nose is aromatic, subtle and elegant, with tones of peach, apple, and tropical fruit, with a flowery bouquet. The taste is savory and mineral. It is ideal as an aperitiv wine and as accompaniment to appetizers, pasta dishes, soft cheeses, fish, shellfish, and white meats.
A delicate pleasant Rosé wine with a hint of strawberry. Ideal with mediterranean cuisine, as an aperitif or paired with appetizers.
