Meranese Schiava South tyrol

A.A. Meranese Schiava "Fürst"

An incredibly special, south-facing vineyard with a long, extraordinary history is to be found nestling like a true gem high above Lagundo. For generations already vines of the indigenous Schiava variety have flourished here, grown using the traditional pergola system on these steep slopes and hidden between ancient stone walls. Over the years their roots have driven metres deep into the soil and today, thanks to the naturally limited yield, enable the production of a multifaceted, soft and juicy red wine with fine grippy tannins. Thanks to the conscious employment of wood, the “Fürst” Schiava need fear no comparison at all with a good Pinot Noir.
