The thousand injuries of Fortunato I had borne as I best could, but when he ventured upon insult I vowed revenge. You, who so well know the nature of my soul, will not suppose, however, that I gave utterance to a threat. At length I would be avenged; this was a point definitively settled — but the very definitiveness with which it was resolved precluded the idea of risk.

I must not only punish but punish with impunity. A wrong is unredressed when retribution overtakes its redresser. It is equally unredressed when the avenger fails to make himself felt as such to him who has done the wrong. It must be understood that neither by word nor deed had I given Fortunato cause to doubt my good will. I continued, as was my wont, to smile in his face, and he did not perceive that my smile now was at the thought of his immolation.

The wines at a glance

The rating of the wine reflects the mean value from a tasting by our jury.
The wine was evaluated in a blind tasting.
The wine was tasted as a barrel sample or before an official test number (Amtliche Prüfungsnummer or Staatliche Prüfnummer) was issued.
In our tasting, the wine exhibited a qualitative defect or a wine fault. Depending on the type and severity of the defect or wine fault, the wine was downgraded or rejected.

Pale yellow. Delicately spicy, planty and youthful scent of melon, still marked by the primary fruit. On the palate with creaminess on the one hand, but also with a ripe, vital acidity as a tension curve. Good length.

Baden • Geschützte Ursprungsbezeichnung (g. U.)

Amtliche Prüfungsnummer 311 27 19 • 13.5 % alcohol


Tasted on 18 June 2020 by Werner Elflein

Slightly cloudy cherry red with medium transparency. Fine, cool fragrance of red berries, mainly raspberry. On the tongue with a sweetish fruit component and fine- to coarse-grained tannins, which seem a little brittle at first, but harmonise on the breath. The elegance keeps the upper hand. Good length.
