Description
Schiava (German: Vernatsch) was for centuries the most widespread South Tyrolean red wine. Today there are only a few locations suitable for this native grape variety: The grapes used to make Pagis thrive on the southeastern slopes above the South Tyrolean Wine Route, between St. Michael and St. Pauls. It is fresh and fruity, a real pleasure to drink. The color of the wine is bright ruby ​​red. On the nose it has a fruity aroma reminiscent of cherries, violets and red fruits. On the palate it is full, smooth and elegant with subtle notes of bitter almond. Pagis goes well with dishes such as ravioli with a butter and sage sauce, with smoked meat, sausages, mild cheeses and bread with tappenade. When chilled, it also goes very well with fish!

At an altitude of 400 to 450m in the Pagis vineyard in Eppan, the grapes grow south-east facing. The terroir consists of limestone gravel. Convenient harvesting of the Vernatsch takes place from the end of September. Fermentation in stainless steel tanks. Malolactic fermentation in large oak barrels (70-100 hl), in which the wine is aged for at least five to six months.
