Schiava o Vernatsch Alte Reben

Vernatsch (Schiava) is probably the most famous autochthonous grape variety in South Tyrol. The typical fruity and aromatic red wine is made of grapes with unusual large-sized berries.

As the name suggests, the grapes come from older vines that are partially over 80 years-old.

The label shows a combination of its place of origin and a bottle. The vineyards for this Vernatsch are located in special sites of Breitbach, a smaller part of the village Cortaccia. There can be found impressive large cypresses in the middle of the vineyard.
