2010 Erste e Neue "Grobnerhof" Santa Magdalener Alto Adige

SKU #1071490

Here is an excellent quaffer from a highly revered co-op in the Alto Adige--Erste e Neue. It's got a great deep ruby color with aromas and flavors of cherry with nutty accents. Fruity and round, with moderate in alcohol, this wine pairs well with mediterranean dishes as well as spicy Asian fare. I love, love love good versions of St. Magdalener (93% Vernatsch, 7% Lagrein) and this is an excellent version indeed! (Chris Miller, K&L Italian Specialist, Hollywood)

Santa Magdalener is a blend of Vernatsch (aka Schiava) and Lagrein, and it is the perfect summer red. Medium-bodied, it is characterized by fruity notes (cherry and raspberry) with almond and violet and hints of spices and herbs, sort of like a cross between Beaujolais and Bourgeuil. It is mouthwatering and savory. I like to give this a slight chill and pair it with grilled poultry or just sip it on the porch with some salami andsalty cheese.

Italy

- Once named Enotria for its abundant vineyards, Italy (thanks to the ancient Greeks and Romans) has had an enormous impact on the wine world. From the shores of Italy, the Romans brought grapes and their winemaking techniques to North Africa, Spain and Portugal, Germany, France, the Danube Valley, the Middle East and even England. Modern Italy, which didn't actually exist as a country until the 1870s, once produced mainly simple, everyday wine. It wasn't until the 1970s that Italy began the change toward quality. The 1980s showed incredible efforts and a lot of experimentation. The 1990s marked the real jump in consistent quality, including excellence in many Region that had been indistinct for ages. The entire Italian peninsula is seeing a winemaking revolution and is now one of the most exciting wine Region in the world. For our entire Italian wine selection, click here.
