Schiava has got what it takes! Also known as Vernatsch, this leading indigenous red variety of the region has been at home in Alto Adige since as early as the sixteenth century, and it is being grown with broader and broader distribution. In recent decades, the area planted was drastically reduced, and thus Schiava gained considerably in quality and right now is experiencing a Renaissance. As a light wine with moderate tannins, floral tones of violets and fresh berries, it is also a popular aperitif wine when chilled.
