ABOUT THE WINE: When the Romans advanced the Po Valley to Bolzano in 15 B.C. and conquered Rhaetia, they found a winegrowing culture that was already over five hundred years old. The presumption that Schiava had already been planted at that time is naturally suggested: the German name for the grape, Vernatsch, is a derivation the Latin vernaculus meaning "native". In the wine literature, the noble Schiava Grigia stands out among all Schiava varieties. The name originates the characteristic silky grayness that is deposited on the skin of the berries during the final ripening phase. It was in particular Edmund Mach, the pioneer of modern Alto Adige oenology, who recognized and described the high flavor concentration of the low-yield, small Schiava Grigia berries. "Sonntaler" Schiava Grigia comes the oldest vines in Kurtatsch that now naturally produce a very low, very high quality yield. The aroma bouquet is intense and varied, reminiscent of the first fruits of summer: sweet cherries, wild strawberries, red currants. The elegant, sleek body has a vigorous presence on the palate, while grainy tannins give the supple fruitiness of the typical Schiava Grigia varietal a long, juicy finish.
