Egger-Ramer Schiava Gentile Alto Adige DOC 2016


Estate: Peter Egger-Rammer is a 4th generation winemaker, cultivating the land his family has tended to since 1880. The few hectares of vineyards are located in the valley of the town of Bolzano in the San Paolo Appiano district of northern Italy.

Tasting Notes: Red violet in colour, very aromatic with fresh strawberry, raspberry, dusty earth white pepper and floral aromas. Clean fruit flavours of cherry, strawberry, raspberry and red currant are given a shake of white pepper. Refreshing acidity and light tannins fuse into the dry, fruity finish. Simple and pure, fantastic on its own or with a wide variety of dishes. [It was excellent with porcini and local mushrooms, béchamel and parmigiano reggiano lasagna.]

Serve slightly chilled.
