Spanna has often been cited by wine experts as one of Italy’s greatest ageing wines. Spanna’s longevity can be attributed, at least in part, to the addition of smaller amounts of less tannic, more acidic grape varieties. Tasting notes: The nose opens up beautifully after about an hour and the wine has gorgeous ripe and sweet fruit, nice acidity, and perfectly softened tannins.

St. Magdalena is an area covering the lower, south-facing slopes above Bozen-Bolzano. The “Kienaster” vineyard where this particular wine comes from is situated near the village of St. Pauls. It is made from the Vernatsch-Schiava grape and a very small proportion of Lagrein. The extremely favourable climatic conditions combined with very steep vineyards result in a dark ruby wine, finely scented, soft and velvety on the palate.

This 1974 Castarede armagnac has a shiny brown hue with a shimmering green tint. The nose is incredibly rich and elegant, with touches of spice, dry prune, orange peel and cinnamon. The spirit is well balanced and very frank in the mouth, while the tannins are soft and melted. Very spicy aromas of prune and liquorice erupt from the glass, then – after aeration – rancio and butter notes remain in the mouth: the finish is very long and rich.
This is the oldest Armagnac house where the family has traded from 1832 casks brought by carts from the Bas Armagnac region. For almost 50 years, Pont de Bordes first, then Condom will be the vital center in the Armagnac trading.
