The Linticlarus Selection line includes the premium wines of the Tiefenbrunner Estate Winery, which are produced only in exceptional vintages. The name “Linticlarus” is taken from the name of the former Roman fortress "castrum linticlar" in Entiklar. The goal of this selection is to combine the highest potential of both the vineyard and the vintner's art to produce inimitable, world-class wines.
Fermentation on the skins in stainless steel tanks is followed by malolactic fermentation and a 12-month aging period in small oaken barrels. After a further six months in large wooden casks, the wine ages for another year in the bottle.
This native South Tyrolean wine is deep ruby in color and exhibits aromas of black cherries, wild berries, and tart plums with rich, dark chocolate and vanilla notes. The smooth, finely-grained tannins give structure to the wine and are accompanied by relatively high acidity leading to a bright finish.
This rustic red is the perfect partner to a hearty bowl of Bolognese, or Italian beef stew. Mangia!
