Gentiana purpurea - or is this a separate (sub)species?

Looking at other pictures of Gentiana purpurea, while they vary a bit in color, I couldn't find one as deep red as this. So, is it a fluke, or a different (sub)species?
I saw it on the northwestern slopes of the Ballunspitze, not all that far above the Kops Speicher. It wasn't the only one around, there were quite a few more. And none where purple, all were the same deep red color.
