2016 Schiava (Vernatsch) "Breitbacher" (Castelfeder, Azienda Agricola)

Azienda Agricola Castelfeder, Schiava (Vernatsch) "Breitbacher," Alto Adige, Italy 2016

100% Schiava

BRIGHT & FLORAL, INTENSE, SNAPPY STRAWBERRY

A grape with a name meaning "Slavic" grown in a region of Italy where the street signs are in German. What could be simpler? Looking at its pale ruby color, you would be forgiven for thinking that this might be a very dark rosé. Vivid aromas of sweet flowers, candied strawberry, cherry, and pomegranate give way on the palate to firm, soft tannins and pleasant acidity. This easy-drinking red from Italy's northern Alto Adige region is equally at home on hot summer nights and frosted winter evenings.

Serving suggestions: Thinly sliced Speck (cured ham leg from Alto Adige) & Pecorino cheese. Baked macaroni & cheese w/ spiced ham. With a loved one in front of a fire on a snowy winter night
