A red wine made the Schiava grape, which is still the most widely-cultivated in South Tyrol. This variety has been able to develop and improve to its best form in special cultivation areas, such as on the hills of Pagis in Ap - piano. Its clear, ruby red colour is charming; the wine re - veals fruity aromas, gentle violets and jasmine. A Schiava which, thanks to its multifaceted character, is excellently suited as an accompaniment for most dishes throughout an entire meal. It goes especially well with traditional Tyrolean snacks such as bread with bacon, sausages and cheeses. This wine is drunk young at cellar temperature chilled but not cold.
The Lagrein has a dark ruby colour, during its youth with violet, later with garnet red reflexes. It is a pleasant, dry red wine, with notes of violets, chocolate and liquorice, on the palate it is velvety and with mild acidity. It is rich in tannins, but in the Bolzano basin, these tannins evolve in a very mild and sweet way. Recommended pairings are game, red meat and ripened cheese
The Schiava grape is a varietal specific to South Tyrol and has a subtle and delicate aroma. With its reserved character, the Schiava is able to highlight every delicious dish. The Gschleier vineyards distinguish themselves by vineyards that are now more than 100 years old.
A full-bodied, harmonious wine with touches of clove and roses; persistent on the finish.
