The Kupelwieser wines have an almost Germanic precision to them, but an Italian soul. The aromas are intense and powerful, the flavours equally defined, with tense, coiled structure underneath.
“The Schiava grape produces softly contoured and delicate red wines that offer a mild texture and lean appearance not unlike a traditional Pinot Noir from Burgundy. The 2019 Alto Adige Vernatsch Schiava opens to aromas of wild raspberry, rose, lilac and white licorice. The wine’s smooth and silky mouthfeel and its fresh berry flavors call out for some homemade fried chicken. With 14,000 bottles made, you get terrific value. Peter Zemmer offers some of the best values to be found in Alto Adige” – Robert Parker’s Wine Advocate
