TAL 1908 and TAL 1930, our new wines from the Superior line, will be available as a limited edition from 2 December. Even though the number of bottles is extremely limited, it is a special concern of ours to give some wine lovers a pleasure.


TAL 1908 • Südtirol Alto Adige DOC
TAL 1908. Passion and patience provided the perfect foundations for our first Superior cuvées. A lot of energy and experience, knowledge and commitment went into them. They are the result of years of unceasing research, of tireless experimentation by our winemakers and cellar master, to compose the best grapes into a unique pleasure experience.We have given our Superior red an equally convincing name: TAL 1908, the founding year of the Gries Winery. Its history is bound up with three rivers, but it is the Talvera that has had the profoundest influence. Bolzano is not called Talvera Town for no reason. Its ancient flood plains have given winegrowers very special soils. These alluvial soils on porphyry offer the ideal foundation, especially for Lagrein, but also for Cabernet and Merlot. With its good permeability to water and its mineral deposits, Bolzano’s volcanic porphyry is one of the keys to wines of character.The bold idea for this red cuvée is an uncompromising composition of three wines, with careful selection in single vineyards – sun-blessed sites in the Bolzano basin cooled by the winds from the Sarentino Valley and selected vines, which are up to 50 years old and subject to strict yield management as with all our top products.Color Deep shades of garnet with purple highlights. The fullness of the unique composition remains an impenetrable mystery even for connoisseurs.Nose A symphony of ripe fruits, especially aromas of raspberries, currants and blackberries, with light notes of pepper and cloves combined with hints of cocoa, graphite and licorice in its depths. All in all, the cuvée has the elegance of an artistic fan.Palate The TAL 1908 bathes the palate in complex harmony. It has a very pleasant, soft finesse balanced by a mineral freshness and pleasant acidity. It is mildly opulent on the finish.Grape variety 80 % Lagrein, 17 % Cabernet, 3 % MerlotCultivating area Gries, MoritzingFlowering Beginning of MayHarvest date 40th week (beginning of October)Ageing potential 15 years and moreProduction 2,999 bottlesServing temperature: 16 °CYield: 3,500 l per hectareAlcohol: 14 % vol*Residual sugar: 2,5 g/l*Acidity: 5,4 gr/l** Depending on the year, the analytical values ​​may vary slightly


TAL 1930 • Südtirol Alto Adige DOC
TAL 1930.They are the result of years of unceasing research, of tireless experimentation by our winemakers and cellar master to compose the best grapes into a unique pleasure experience.This new Superior white wine recalls the beginnings of the Santa Maddalena Winery in 1930: a year, a number, of special significance for the history of wine-growing in Alto Adige – and for the Bolzano Winery.The contrast between mountain and valley, Alpine and Mediterranean, determines the character of the cuvée. The vineyards for our white varieties, Chardonnay, Sauvignon and Pinot Grigio, are located between the valley bottom and the slopes, sometimes gentle, sometimes steep, of the famous Renon near Bolzano. There is considerable variation in the sites at 400 - 700 meters above sea level, with changes in exposure and significant differences in temperature created by the sun of the Dolomites and the winds – strong at times – of the Isarco Valley.Color Bright straw yellow with golden highlights, cool and seductive at the same time. Reflects the brilliance of the composition.Nose Intense yet elegant notes of exotic fruits such as mango, pineapple and melon combined with fresh hints of grapefruit and lime. Aromas of apple, pear and lychee accompany notes of elderflower and jasmine, plus a light-as-a-feather sweetness of caramel.Palate Exquisite freshness, stimulating and caressing the palate, harmonious generosity. Every sip is invigorating and persistent, with a fulfilling mineral finesse.Grape variety 69 % Chardonnay, 21 % Sauvignon, 10 % Pinot GrigioCultivating area Leitach, RenonFlowering Beginning of MayHarvest date 36th week (beginning of September)Ageing potential 10 years and moreProduction 1.888 bottlesServing temperature: 8 - 10 °CYield: 3,800 l per hectareAlcohol: 14 % vol*Residual sugar: 1,0 gr/l*Acidity: 6,3 gr/l** Depending on the year, the analytical values ​​may vary slightly
