hmm. delectable is saying the Elda is Schiava. i always thought it was Teroldigo. regardless, this vintage is a let down. Mayr’s trademark balance of fruit and mineral notes is covered by an oaky sweetness that isn’t expected in his wines.

Bright, fresh and young fruit--cherry, raspberry and he like--deepened by the craggy, earthy backdrop of mountain wines.

All time fave. Powdered berries and lick 'em leaves.

Tight little bastard initially with a little funk that made me fear the TCA horror I've experienced last vintage but du calme, mon Vieux a little decanting and as the last drops consumed it's pretty little red sour cherry floral delight emerge if a bit heavier and broader than the 2009 which I preferred to this. Perhaps an adolescent stage for it , too

Nice wine from Süd Tyrol made from Trollinger (aka Schiava or Vernatsch) had moderate acidity and light bodied with fruity strawberry and subtle smokey notes
