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.
The winter months of 2022 were markedly poor in precipitation. Only April brought significant rain and replenished the groundwater somewhat. May was one of the warmest on record and gave a strong boost to vegetation. The entire summer was marked by drought and was reminiscent of the summers of 2003 and 2015. The ripening of the grapes progressed rapidly and already on August 24 the first grapes were delivered to the winery. As the autumn also brought hardly any precipitation, the grape harvest went smoothly and excellent grapes were harvested. As early as mid-October, the grape harvest came to an end.
– deep cherry red
– 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
This wine is well paired with pasta dishes, as well as lighter meats.
Fermentation on the skins at 26 °C with 7-days extended maceration, malo-lactic fermentation and 4-month ageing on the fine lees in stainless steel and large casks.
South-facing slopes situated at 300 – 450 meters above sea level. Sandy, eroded porphyry soil, heat-retaining and well-drained.
