Elena Walch Schiava 2018
Bright ruby in colour with a delicate hint of cherry on the nose. On the palate, it is harmonious and elegant due to naturally mild acidity and tannin with a pleasant bitter almond flavor on the finish. An elegant, fruity red wine with good lengths.
An interesting wine for Mediterranean and Pasta dishes, as well as antipasti. Serve chilled.

Creating transparent, cranberry colored reds, perfumed with a hint of mint or pepper, the Schiava grape makes its home in the Alto Adige region of NE Italy. The German speakers here call it Vernatsch and it goes by the name of Trollinger in the German region of Württemberg. Schiava enjoys great popularity in Switzerland, Austria and southern Germany. Somm Secret—Schiava’s bright raspberry and pomegranate qualities make it a perfectly delightful summer red! Serve it slightly chilled.
