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.

Temperature controlled alcoholic fermentation in small stainless steel tanks. Afterwards controlled malolactic conversion and ageing for a year in little wooden barrels of 5 hectoliters and in little stainless steel barrels. After the assemblage, the process of bottling occurred in February 2019.
The colour is a bright ruby-red. A juicy and rich mouthfeel is followed by notes of violets and almonds, combined with subtle notes of oak and clear hints of fine-grained tannins.
