St. Michael-Eppan Pagis Vernatsch Schiava 2017

Opens with a bit of reduction, Plums & more plums and a bit of cherry with a pinch of cinnamon & cloves and some damp, earthy undergrowth. On the palate this is surprisingly plush (for a Vernatsch) with soft plums and a bit of prune plus a herby, slightly bitter tang. Quite tannic yet juicy & nicely balanced.
A very nice one, in a riper, fuller style (again, for a Vernatsch).

How do you not love these Alto Adige wines? Light garnet in the glass with thin edges and a soft violet undertone. And what to say about this nose? Gorgeous red fruits, strawberry lemonade, fresh herbs, and a definite floral influence. I know and love Lagrein but I’m a relative newcomer to Schiava. Striking a nice balance between rustic earthiness and wonderfully bright fruit, this charms with simplicity but there’s a lot more to it beneath the surface. Deliciously feminine and supremely dry, the luscious mouthfeel leads to a textured palate. Cranberry, ripe cherry, and wild strawberry mingle with allspice and underbrush. If you can’t tell, I love this wine. And so should you. — 4 months ago
