The Schiava donates to this wine his elegance and smoothness which is supported by the complexity and astringency of the Lagrein. This Santa Maddalena wins you over with elegance, body and complexity. A special selection which shoes that Schiava-wines do not need to shy away from an international comparison.
“To produce an absolutely outstanding Santa Maddalena from the grapes of the Premstallerhof estate, working in perfect harmony with nature,” this was Gertrud Vogel’s dream when at the beginning of the new millennium she decided to personally take charge of the family estate in Santa Maddalena. And this is also the objective that enologist Hannes Rottensteiner set for himself. The outcome? A selection of Santa Maddalena grown in the Premstallerhof estate’s best areas which seduces with its diversity, concentration, and complexity.
The Premstallerhof estate is one of the CRU vineyards in the Santa Maddalena area. It is situated between 450-550m above Bolzano. The lowest plots of Schiava and Lagrein are harvested by hand with extreme care, made into wine separately, and come round in wooden barrels.
