Surely young, surely delicious !!
I consider the vernatsch, which we call in Italian Schiava gentile, our petit pinot noir.
This is an established label of an old vines version, a rare example of schiava that does age very well.
This is a wine somehow that if you blind taste it you could mistake for a white, absence of tannin and good freshness. With time it builds up a bit of flesh, but it does remains generally a grape to drink when young. Best examples are in the St. Magdalener denomination.
Still i enjoy this label everytime and also the other schiava Girlan produces.

Very nice riesling. Very light and smooth. Apple and lime by nose. Delicate flower notes. — 19 days ago
Super interesting Sauvignon Blanc, reminds me of old Chablis gold, white raisin, ozone, hazelnut and almond.. — 18 days ago
A good white, not too sweet. Also not too dry though. Went great with coconut tofu. — 9 days ago
Intense spiced berry, black licorice and peppery florals emerge from the 2017 Terre di San Leonardo. Silky with depths of fruit accelerated by brisk acids, the 2017 leaves the palate reeling, with its spry, lightly structured personality. This young-vine Bordeaux blend is an amazing value. $22.00 (Eric Guido, Vinous, January 2022) — 16 days ago
St Michael-Eppan Lagrein 2015: Medium-plus body. Bold fruit flavors. Plum & blackberry with subtle hints of tobacco & leather. For me, this wine had the right amount of acidity & tannins, hence making for a dry & smooth finish. It’s always great to enjoy Italian mountain wine when the weather is cold & crisp. Stay healthy & warm! Cheers🍷 — 15 days ago
