2018 Franz Gojer Glogglhof 'Vigna Rondell' Sudtirol St. Magdalaner Classico, Trentino-Alto Adige, Italy
Light, buoyant and fresh, the 2018 Alto Adige St. Maddalena Classico Vigna Rondell is a terrific expression of the Schiava grape with 5% Lagrein. It shows more power, depth and concentration than many of its peers, and this opens the wine up to a bigger list of food-pairing possibilities. Roast chicken or pasta would work, as this is definitely one of those accessible wines that matches your favorite foods. The fruit comes from 60-year-old vines, and the wine is aged in large oak casks for nine months.
