Light smoke. Red and black fruit. High acidity and brightness. Delightful. A story buyers notes: Santa Maddalena Classico is its own DOC in the heart of Bolzano. By law the wine must be 90% Schiava (aka Trollinger) and 10% Lagrein. This combination works to add a touch of richness and body to the normally bright and aromatic schiava. The vineyard is a large slope scaling from 250 meters to 500 meters, with the Lagrein grown on the lower portion of the hill. These are old vines averaging between 40-50 years old.

Fresh & sappy with underripe cherry, cranberry and whiff of moss and a pinch of fresh mint. A touch of plum, too.
On the palate this is light yet with nice juicy tannins giving a frame and the cranberry acidity filling it. Fresh, sappy and so drinkable.
There’s a touch of fatty, bright character, so typical German and so unnecessary.
But at 7€ this is absolutely brilliant, even if the top Vernatsch from Südtirol (at 30€+!) are a nudge purer and a touch more mineral. — 2 months ago
Excellent wine. — 3 months ago
Looks: very light transclucent red. Looks like a very thin body. Thick legs moving down the glass very slowly despite the wine looking thin
Smell: very fresh on the nose with soy of freshly picked red fruits notes. Fresh strawberries (abit unripe), preserved cherries and almonds in the background. No oak.
Taste: medium to low acidicity with little to almost no tannins. Almost no fruit on the palate and very weak, almost thin finish with a little preserved cherries coming out at the end.
