Colour: ruby red with violet tones Aroma: open and fruity with heart cherries and Mon Chéri pralines, a hint of cinnamon and marzipan Taste: smooth and fruity, well-structured with soft tannins, sophisticated yet invitingly drinkable with the typical lightness of a Vernatsch wine, fruity and long in the finish
Colour: dark, strong ruby red Aroma: velvety and fruity with ripe cherries, damsons and raspberries, as well as bitter chocolate Taste: full-bodied and juicy, clear, soft tannin structure, youthfully fresh and velvety, inviting and stimulating finish
With this wine we want to express the typical nature of the red wines our production area. This red wine is the combination of the lightness and of the Schiava, the pleasant fruity richness of the Pinot Noir and the velvety and quite full-bodied bouquet of the Lagrein. This is a wine that goes well with grilled and roast meats, game and spicy cheeses.
