Schiava (German: Vernatsch) was for centuries the most important South Tyrolean red wine. Today there are only a few places that are suitable for this authentic grape variety. They can be found on the southeastern slopes above the South Tyrolean Wine Road, between St. Michael and St. Pauls. It is fresh, fruity and has a fine aroma of bitter almonds. Just a classic - a guarantee for real drinking pleasure.
The Great Hamerma
At one time, enjoying the exclusive right of the region. Has winemaker Hans Terzer made short work of it. Does not mean, however, that he has banned it. On the contrary. He has lifted the best to a higher level. Especially those from their own ranks. Cool slightly. To refresh the fresh-peppery red fruit. The fine acids to send. More to enjoy forest strawberries and to emphasize the characteristic bitterness of almonds. Delicious edition.
Press wine December 2017
Smelling of red cherries, blue fruit and a hint rustic, in the taste smudge salty, stalks, tension, cinnamon and spices.
Alto Adige is also called Sudtirol and is a region, in Northeast Italy, where sporadically still natives occur in Lederhosen. A large part of the red grapes there is called vernaccia, and to make it difficult that is not 1 grape but there are several grapes called vernaccia. Vernaccia probably comes from a Latin word that means 'indigenous', so that as a student of grapes you do not get much further. This vernaccia, also called vernatsch, is actually called schiava grossa. There are also other schiavas, but you will probably believe that, and I am now too thirsty to go even further. And whatever happens with schiava, it is good wine against the picky thirst. Light and rippling in taste, with some rustic undergrowth between the red fruit. Cool the best.
