Lago di Caldaro Classico Superiore - 2017 - Winery Prälatenhof
The color of rubies, its interesting bouquet of violets paired with a round, harmonious taste of bitter almonds, combine to make this wine an unusually sophisticated representative of its kind.
The Kalterersee Auslese is a light-bodied wine, whose color is light ruby to deep ruby red. It is pleasant and fruity on the palate, often with a touch of bitter almonds.
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.
It is full ruby in colour with violet reflexes, fresh and intensely fruity on the nose, fragrant with a flavour of woodland berry fruits on the palate and a lightly almondy finish. The wine's succulent, gentle fruity character , soft, unobtrusive tannins and mild supple acidity make it a favourite for social drinking.
Brilliant ruby colour with purple tints. Quite pronounced, very fruity aroma with impressions of red fruit cherries and violets. Medium bodied, quite mild and soft though dry. Fresh and slightly spicy aftertaste with an elegant bitter note of bitter almonds. Lagdo di Caldaro is usually drunk in the year after production, but can laso be cellared for at least 3 years.
