Peter Zemmer Vernatsch Schiava DOC

Beautifully light and perfectly balanced! This wine is 'easy to drink' personified, or should I say liquified?
Schiava (a blend of various varieties of Schiava) – Alto Adige DOC. This varietal is grown with the traditional trellis system, the pergola, on gently warmed loamy soils of the beautiful slopes around Cortaccia. The area offers the basis for a product of outstanding quality. The grapes are destemmed first, then fermented for 8 days at a constant temperature. The must is kept in regular contact with the skins through circulation pumping and gentle pressure from below. This way, they achieve ideal results with the colouring from the skins and emphasize the fruitiness of the wine.

Light ruby red colour. The pleasant bouquet is fresh and fruity, with raspberry, red cherry and strawberry fruits coming to the fore. Fruit-forward flavours are balanced with light tones of bitter almonds. Dry and mild, the harmonious palate is lively and light with soft tannins.
