Located along the famous Südtiroler Weinstraße (Wine Road) in Italy’s northernmost region of the Trentino Alto Adige, the Wilhelm Walch Winery has been producing high-quality grape from an old Jesuit monastery in the medieval town of Tramin since 1869.

And out from Walch’s flows  St. Magdalener DOC Rosso, a delicious red that I’ve enjoyed on numerous occasions.

A blend of 90% Vernatsch and 10% Lagrein-Pinot NeroSt. Magdalener DOC Rosso is brought to fruition in large Slovenian oak barrels.

A dense cherry-red color, the bouquet is freshly picked cherries, slightly bitter almonds and a touch of violet. On the palate, it’s juicy and pleasant, and this “saint” follows through with a very nice soft and round finish.

St. Magdalener DOC Rosso pairs well with a variety of dishes: mild cheeses, spicy starters, light meats — grilled or roasted — freshwater fish and our “Lazy Person” flatbread pizzas.

Drink responsibly.

SALUTE!
