Alto Adige | Bolzano

Florian and Georg Ramoser are the tight father-son team behind a sharply focused set of wines from schiava and lagrein. Untermoserhof, the Ramoser family home and winery that dates to 1640, sits just above Bolzano. Steep slopes, challenging varieties, and the Ramosers’ dedication to minimal-input farming demand rigorous handwork in the vineyards. Their concentration on old vines, dense plantings, controlled yields, and thoughtful cellar work is bringing exceptional results — dense, spice-tinged lagrein and vivid, inflected schiava.

Untermoserhof 2018 Santa Magdalena Classico DOC

St. Magdalener is the region’s traditional schiava-dominant blend that is deepened by the addition of a small percentage of lagrein. The “Classico” designation identifies wines from historic sites on the northeastern edge of Bolzano. For this St. Magdalena, fermentation takes place in stainless steel. During fermentation, pump overs are done twice a day initially, then once daily toward the end. After 10-14 days, wines are racked and pressed. Afterward, the wine goes through malo in large oak cask. The wines age for about seven months, before bottling in May or June.
