VARIETY: 100 % SCHIAVA
PRODUCTION: Traditional pergola planted on soils on the southeast facing hillside of Breitbach, a fraction of Kurtatsch.
VINEYARDS: This single vineyard is planted with a combination of different Schiava clones; primarily Grauvernatsch, Edelvernatsch but also Klein-Mittervernatsch on Pergola with 2020 vines/ha
SOIL PROPERTIES: Chalk gravel moraine soil
VINIFICATION: The grapes are destemmed and fermented at a constant temperature of 26-28° C for about 10 days in stainless steel tanks. During fermentation in stainless steel tanks the must is kept in contact with the skins through circulation pumping. Alcoholic fermentation is follows by malolactic fermentation in stainless steel.
TASTING NOTES: This wine once again proves the great potential of the Schiava variety. Bright ruby-red colour, it shows fine friut aromas as well as vinous flavours. With its light and smooth tannin and a pleasant freshness, this well-balanced wine is uncomplicated and easy-drinking and the perfect combination to traditional Speck (a kind of smoked bacon).
SERVING TEMP.: 14°-16° °C
SHELF LIFE: 2-3 years
