Schiava (Vernatsch) is the oldest indigenous red grape variety in South Tyrol and enjoys a particularly high status in in Merano and surrounding area. A genuine all-rounder when it comes to accompanying meals, especially traditional South Tyrolean dishes and Italian specialities. This light red wine is a popular appetizer when chilled.
Pure tradition coupled with a fresh, fruity drinking experience.
Traditional red wine fermentation in large stainless steel tanks; malolactic conversion and ageing on the fine lees for 5 months in large oak casks.
The colour is a bright ruby red. The bouquet reminds of almonds, violets and red fruits; lively on the palate, silky tannins and a refreshing, well-bounded fruit acidity, fine medium finish.
