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.
– dark ruby red
– fine fruity notes recalling sour cherry
– full body with typical subdued notes of almond
– pleasent and long lasting aftertaste
This wine is well paired with light mediterranean dishes and white meat.
Both varieties grow together in the same vineyard, so they were also cropped and vinificated together; mash fermentation in stainless steel tanks; storage in big wooden casks for some months.
South-facing slopes situated at 300 – 450 meters above sea level at the classic St. Magdalener growing area in Bolzano. Heat storing, eroded porphyry soil.
