For many years, this highly coloured, tannin-rich and powerful red wine variety from Bordeaux in France has been feeling increasingly at home in the warmest vineyards in South Tyrol. However, only consistent yield reduction enables it to develop into a profound, substantial red wine with the zesty aromas typical of its variety. A wine that, as a “Riserva”, is developing into a genuine charmer.
Cabernet, one of the noble grape varieties, has been cultivated in Alto Adige for more than a hundred years. The grapes for this fruity and zesty wine are harvested from selected vineyards.
Cabernet is among South Tyrol’s true aristocratic varietal wines and has been cultivated here for over a century. Full dark ruby in colour with a concentrated aroma of blackcurrant and blackberry, rich on the palate with assertive, supple tannins, long with fresh fruit on the finish.
Cabernet Sauvignon is known for its typical smell of black currant and the soft, noble tannins. Through the long contact with the mash, an attempt was made to achieve maximum extraction of the grapes and thus elegant tannins. The wine has a nice fruity note with elegant tannins and a long finish.
Very deep, almost black in colour with violet reflexes. Sweet berries and plum fruit intermingled with savoury aromas, herbs, earth, liquorice and leather; supple with ripe and velvety tannins and a rich, fruity mouthfeel on the palate, lingering for an impressive, long finish.
The name "FREIENFELD" stems from the Renaissance manor of the same name in which the winery was founded in 1900. At this early time, the sunny slopes of Kurtatsch and their porous, calciferous dolomite soils showed their potential for Cabernet.Only in years of optimal weather conditions do we make FREIENFELD. In the nose, dark berries and Mediterranean herbs dominate (bay laurel, marjoram, lavender). Its plump fruitiness is carried by fine-grained tannins. Notes of peppermint and stone pine bear witness to its Alpine origin. The accompanying smooth tannins and invigorating acidity suggest its very long potential for ageing.
The grapes for this “Collection” line wine are grown on the best sites for the variety. The selected grapes produce a mature, full-bodied, elegant and long-lived wine.
Of an impressive deep dark colour; sweet currant, plum fruit and cassis burst to the nose; herbs, earth and liquorice aromas are nicely intermingled in this elegant, full-textured wine; subtle but savoury on the palate, supple and with ripe, sweet tannins.
One single image, immobile within the flow of time. A sigh of yearning melds into the immense breath of nature that infuses all, and the succession of the seasons caresses the vine-clad hills. Pearl-like, the berries enfold a treasure that man’s hand will unveil, only to be once more hidden, flowing into a bottle, there to rest, silent, waiting, until the moment when the curtain rises and it emerges, the star, the soloist, alone on centre stage. Experience will then become memory, imprinted on heart and mind: kunst.stück, artwork.
The Cabernet Mumelter is a typical Cabernet Riserva. This cuvée of Cabernet Sauvignon and Cabernet Franc blends the characteristics of the two grape varieties to create a full-bodied, elegant and harmonious wine with concentrated fruit.
The colour shimmers with passionate life, its impenetrable depths promising intrigue and mystery. Wine is like a good book, inspiring our existence with its enthralling narrative.
Cabernet Sauvignon is known for its typical smell of black currant and the soft, noble tannins. Through the long contact with the mash, an attempt was made to achieve maximum extraction of the grapes and thus elegant tannins. The long aging in wooden barrels has given the wine a certain complexity and rounded off the tannins.
Cabernet Sauvignon Riserva Purple red in color with garnet highlights. A contrast of aromas between intense fruits such as black currant and blueberry and a whiff of bay leaf and melissa. A powerful structure in all its fullness but soft on the palate, thanks to its round and elegant tannins. Pleasantly persistent. Sass Ròa: The Ladin name derives from legends of the Dolomites and means »Glowing red stone in the pale rock«
