Cantina Valle Isarco Classic Schiava

INTRODUCTION

Although the grapes grown in the Isarco Valley are mostly white, some areas do have the right features to thrive great red wines as well. The special microclimate and particular geographical conditions give the wines their delicate, smooth and pleasant character. Schiava, the grape variety most typical of and most commonly cultivated in South Tyrol, is instead scarcely grown in the Valle Isarco. The production area, located at the mouth of the valley, north of Bolzano, fully meets the needs of this variety, providing the typical Schiava elegance and fruity notes that have made this red wine the most renowned of South Tyrol. Traditional maceration on the skins in temperature-controlled conditions in steel vats, is followed by malolactic fermentation and ageing on fine lees in stainless steel vats.

TASTING NOTE

This light-medium, ruby red, displays very pleasant fruity characteristics on the nose. It is light-bodied with low tannin, which leaves a delicate wine, which is harmonious with slight hints of almond.
