Some say that the South Tyrol is a bit of Austria, a bit of Germany and a bit of Italy all put together -- but really? It’s a thing all its own: a pure, unpolluted world where typical alpine elegance is reflected in every single aspect of everyday life. Wine’s been made here since 500 BC, and it’s easier to imagine an unbroken vinous chain here than just about anywhere in the world. Schiava’s the region’s most famous red, and it’s famously fresh. This single-vineyard bottling is a total swoon: herbal, alpine, and shot through with ripe red cherry fruit.
