The St. Magdalener from Alto Adige is mainly made using the autochthonous Schiava grape. It is considered relatively full-bodied and therefore the strongest wine in the large Schiava family.
In many respects 2021 was a demanding and challenging wine growing year. The winter months were mainly sunny but very cold. In spring the temperature was slow to rise, and that delayed the vegetative development of the vines. This was only partly compensated by the warm and sunny start to the summer, while the weather in July and August was very varied. The grape harvest accordingly began relatively late, on September 9. The wet September was an organizational problem for our wine growers, but ultimately a very good harvest was completed on October 26.

– fruit-dominated nose, reminiscent of cherries, a light undertone of bitter almonds and violets
– juicy and voluptuous on the palate, soft and round on the finish
