Peter Zemmer, Vernatsch Schiava Gentile 2015, Alto Adige, Italy
Tasting Note: This grape is grown in the Alto Aldige in northern Italy.
Pale-to-medium-intensity ruby in color this wine has an aromatic nose of red plum, red currants, orange citrus and vanilla baking spice.
On the palate the dry, light-bodied Schiava is tart with medium-acidity.
The straightforward wine lacks flavor intensity and is a quaffing wine true and simple; you might even mistake it for a rosé.
Bottle Note: This distinctive elegance of this wine captivates the senses with its perfect harmony. The wine reflects not only it characteristic origin but also the natural distinctiveness of its unique terrain.
