Talfer Lagrein and St. Magdalena Vernatsch
In summer, the Bolzano Basin is sometimes so hot that the daily temperature peaks are the highest in Italy. The best Lagrein ripens on the gravelly alluvial s oil formed by the River Talfer. On the warm St. Magdalena Hill, the most powerful Vernatsch, named after its location, is cultivated.
