St. Michael-Eppan St. Magdalena 2019

Trentino- Alto-Adige, ItalyThe imposing twin towers of the grand St. Michael-Eppan can be see from a distance, representing the 340+ growers that make up the co-op's family since 1907. Vines have been grown in the area around Eppan for 2000 years. This is a blend of 90% Schiava, 10% Lagrein, the former indigenous to this area, from the region's sloping hills, and aged in a mix of barrels and steel. This lighter-hued red streams wild raspberries, wild cherries, worn leather, perfumed red florals and ample white pepper spicing along a sleekly streamlined palate. Acidity is alpine brisk, and tannins are long and lightly grippy, hugging and guiding this to a lightly smoked, saline finish. A tidy view of this spectacular region, ready for enjoying now.Tasted: 06 December 2021Tasted by: Treve RingPrices: BC 38.00 select private retailers and restaurants Producer: Cantina St. Michael-EppanDistributors: Stile Brands
