Made by monks and farmed organically, although they do not have official recognition, this red wine is very dark, both in appearance and in smell. The wine's nose offers lovely aromas of blackberry and blueberry draped in savory notes of spice, herb and black olives. The palate is just as complex, with black berries, anise, a little tar and a trace of espresso.

Beautifully silky Sylvaner from Abbazia di Novacella--five years old now. Wish I had a just-caught Dungeness crab. . .

Südtirol Alto Adige DOC Riserva 2011, 13t%. Bottle tasted in December 2014.
I had this bottle with an excellent dinner, so my comments might be a little biased because it was such a nice experience.
The color was a dark violet, deep and rich.
Intense nose, enveloping, red fruits .
A pleasure in the mouth too: full bodied, long lasting, with a hint of sweetness, but pleasant.
More, please!
