Lago di Caldaro Scelto

Alto Adige DOC 2019

About this wine

The German name for Schiava, "Vernatsch", derives from Latin "vernaculus", "native", and refers to its far-reaching history in Alto Adige. The Alto Adige Schiava designations of origin referring to specific areas have remained unchanged over centuries:

Lago di Caldaro, Meranese di Collina, Colli di Bolzano and Santa Maddalena are Schiava types with historical reference to their geographic area and with unmistakable terroir characteristics. Lago di Caldaro Scelto is a very smooth, lacy Schiava. The Mediterranean climate gives our Schiava silky tannins and plump, fruity body with pep from lively acidity. Its bouquet is reminiscent of cherries and small forest fruits, on the palate it is supple and juicy. Enjoy cooled to 13°C (55°F)!
