Winemaking Team Notes: "Until the 1970s this native grape variety was central to wine-making in Alto Adige, which is why it was long considered a red wine region. As the grapes prefer the shade, we continue to train the Schiava vines with pergola trellis system. The wines have freshness, light and rounded tannins and a moderate alcohol content and are ideal companions to light fare.
Selected from vineyard sites in Caldaro and Cortaccia on gravelly soils with limestone presence (3000-4000m elevation). Macerated in stainless steel and malolactic fermentation in concrete vessels for 6 months.
Tasting Notes: Ruby red with a purple shimmer. Subtly pronounced nose with fresh and fruity notes of violet and white pepper. Light-to-medium bodied, well-balanced, juicy, soft and dry."
