Schiava, Lagrein

Alto Adige/Südtirol, Italy

Twenty-six wine growers, seeking independance from the local wine merchants, formed their own cooperative in Sudtirol (Alto Adige) in 1960. They named their new winery for their home village of Schreckbichl (Colterenzio in Italian). Early leader Luis Raifer brought new quality standards to the winery, lowering yields to provide better quality grapes for higher quality wines. The co-op has now grown to 300 members with an increased focus on sustainability and organic farming practices. This easy-drinking, summertime red wine is a blend of Schiava (Vernatsch in German) and Lagrein, fermented in stainless steel tanks before being aged for 4 months in concrete. Lush flavors of cherry and strawberry are accented by notes of black & white pepper, hints of spice with some red plum, red pepper and a pleasant savoriness. Despite its light nature, this wine can be cellared for up to two years. Pairs nicely with charcuterie or bolognese.
