About

93

"Tar and smoke provide a mere edge to the plum fruit on the nose. The still taut palate presents a picture of dark fruit, fine tannin and an edge of mocha. This is dense and will relax with just a little bottle age. Freshness is guaranteed, as is juicy, licorice-scented fruit. Drink 2020–2030."

Product Description:

Originating from the best vineyards - Rosenberg, Altenberg and Ungerberg - and based on St Laurent as the lead with Blaufrankisch, Zweigelt and Merlot supporting. The grapes undergo spontaneous fermentation with wild yeasts and treated in the same way as the Pannobile. After months of barrel-maturation the most suitable wines are chosen for the blend. Unfiltered.
