Alto Adige Schiava DOC 2022

  • Tasting notes

    Traditionally the finest Vernatsch wines are made with grapes from a mixture of very mature Klein-, Mitter- and Grau-Vernatsch vines, as evidenced in this deliciously fruity example: bright, pale red in colour with an intense fresh aroma of summer berry fruits, a hint of morello cherry, mild and full on the palate with an attractive bitter aftertaste.

    Cellaring potential: 2-3 years.

  • Food Combination

    The wine of choice for social drinking among South Tyroleans, it makes an excellent partner for platters of cold meat cuts, mild cheeses, pasta with meat sauces, pizza, smoked or meaty fish.
    Serve cool: 14° C.
