We see ourselves as cultural and natural ambassadors. For me, being a wine grower means first and foremost the area, the place where we live, the vintage and our way of life. In order to be able to do this unadulterated, we work bio-dynamically. Our steep vineyards around the Bozen valley basin, which we process by hand with great effort, are the basis for producing our natural wines. Spontaneous fermentation, long stay on the yeast, no fining and filtration, minimal amounts of sulfur and a lot of patience and feeling are the stages the grape to the wine. We accompany the entire process ourselves in order to produce unique, characterful wines.
For this creation we use a hand made grey cheese with edible vegetal charcoal. Hence the name Ligni comes (Latin "carbon ligni"). A rustic cheese with intensive-substantial smell and easily sourish aroma. Grained and mellow consistency. Excellent as an hors-d'oeuvre in combination with olive oil.
This Reserve gives a compact and concentrated wine with a dark red colour and soft tannins. The typical aromas are Chocolate, Coffee, Vanilla and Violets.
