"Scharfegg" Lagrein Südtirol-Alto adige 2020 - Pitzner Winery

Scharfegg is a pure Lagrein from Pitzner Winery. A decidedly territorial wine, with a pleasantly fruity character. It's the right wine if you plan to bring savoury red meat dishes to the table. It is perfect, for example, with game but also with medium-aged malga cheeses. In the glass it has a beautiful deep ruby red colour with violet hues. On the nose, the nuances of wild berries are intense, well integrated with those of violets. This is all well supported by a subtle, and well-integrated, scent of leather and refreshing eucalyptus. In the mouth it is decidedly velvety, with soft tannins that caress the palate. Slight notes of toast and sweet spices accompany the sip. A great red wine with character, elegant and persistent.

For once, the dusty coat of arms is countered by a sparkling good mood. The two eclectic brothers, Markus Thomas Puff, run their small boutique winery near Bolzano. To learn more about them and their products, just think that.... "in the land below Cornedo Castle, not far from Bolzano, weapons were once manufactured for the local lords. Today we produce wines with a strong character, authentic pleasure bombs". That's what they say about themselves on their website and it's really hard to disprove them. Pitzner Winery has five different vineyards, located in five different areas. And the challenge for the dynamic duo of South Tyrolean winemakers is to get only the best from each individual vineyard. And so it is that every year fans can enjoy a total of 35 thousand bottles. Only a small number? Of course. But on the other hand, they are all very, very good. "In Cardano's cellar, "little but good" is a law that cannot be disputed. It is appreciated."
