Light and easy drinking, accentuated fruit and discreet toasted almond on the finish.
Description: Once the Vernatsch grapes become fully ripe in these sun-drenched sites the grape stalks become reddish in colour and local growers call them "Roatfiassler" ("red-legged") in the local dialect. Hence the name. Bright ruby in colour, intensely fruity on the nose reminiscent of summer berry fruits and cherry; mellow on the palate with supple tannins, mild but refreshing acidity and attractive bitterness on the finish.
Food Choices: An ideal partner for full-flavoured starters, meaty fish and pasta dishes, pork and poultry, cold cuts of meat - especially speck -, salami and mild cheeses.
Grape Variety: 100% Vernatsch (aka Schiava) old pergola trained vines.
Sites: Schreckbichl / Girlan; hillside vineyards at altitudes between 410-440 m; soils are mainly morainal with sand and eroded porphyry.
Yield: 78 hl/ha
Winemaking: The crushed grapes are fermented with the skins in stainless steel tanks with subsequent malolactic fermentation. The new wine is matured in tank on the fine lees for four months.

Delicacy in the Tirol kind which leads back his origin on the Easter party feast. The imperial part of the pig, salted, smoked and matured, stood in days of yore in the centre of the culinary Easter banquet.
Native Sicilian vine with a bright straw yellow colour.
The colour is an inviting lively ruby. The nose, of cherries and nectarines, is fragrant and convincing. In the mouth the wine moves juicily towards the close, while remaining enjoyably refreshing.
