A less perfumed vintage than the 200X I remember. Massively floral nose, Sta. Magdalena (Vernatsch) is drunk too rarely. Glorious food wine. — 5 months ago
From F+W - a unique red wine from the Dolomite Mountain range in Northern Italy.
Big front that finishes light, overall thin bodied. Has a flavor similar to Beaujolais wine but very clean. Great with Moroccan food or something spicy. Light cherry and strawberry. — 8 months ago
Light, fine & quite delicate - reminiscent of a Pinot or Südtirol Vernatsch. Fresh Strawberries & raspberries & red currant with a touch of sage & distant basil.
On the palate this is surprisingly light & fine considering the Barrique & Tonneaux aging - the wood showing only in the backdrop, brilliantly integrated. Fresh acidity, dusty ultra fine tannins.
Red fruit again with a mineral, herby aftertaste. This is very nice, esp. slightly chilled. My style of wine. — a year ago
Great to drink Santa Magdalena again though had hoped for more. Very foresty nose, powerful palate with light flavor intensity (so more power from structure and texture). Fascinating and improved hugely with 2-3 hours air. Probably best with good charcuterie rather than the red meat we fed it. This was a RED wine. — 4 months ago
One more vernatsch/schiava gentile that i deeply enjoy
Simple, honest, that crisp cherry with a tiny bit of bittterness, smooth tannin, great freshness, mineral mood and a feminine body, very attractive, kind of exotic, but familiar...i can't explain
I am sure this bottle will benefit from a couple of years of rest, you can tell there is a texture that is going to flesh out, to become kind of chewy
I reckon this wine is a real bargain, but you need to like the typology — 6 months ago

Surely young, surely delicious !!
I consider the vernatsch, which we call in Italian Schiava gentile, our petit pinot noir.
This is an established label of an old vines version, a rare example of schiava that does age very well.
This is a wine somehow that if you blind taste it you could mistake for a white, absence of tannin and good freshness. With time it builds up a bit of flesh, but it does remains generally a grape to drink when young. Best examples are in the St. Magdalener denomination.
Still i enjoy this label everytime and also the other schiava Girlan produces.
