Meranese Schiava South tyrol Alto Adige
A.A. Meranese Schiava "Schickenburg"
Indigenous and deeply rooted: the Merano Schiava has been grown around Merano for centuries as the area provides the very best growing conditions for it. Nevertheless, only a few grapes from old, selected vines make it into the zesty “Schickenburg”.
Authentic, angular, yet elegant: a real Merano native.Buy Now

The temperature controlled alcoholic fermentation occurs in small stainless steel tanks, followed by the malolactic conversion. The ageing of the wine takes place in used oak casks and steel tanks.
The colour is a bright ruby red. The bouquet reminds of violets and almonds, elegant and soft on the palate with a well-balanced fruit acidity and a harmonious finish.
