Serious Schiava with major Grand Crus Burg vibes.
Most folks fortunate enough to have enjoyed a glass of Schiava know of this whimsical grape’s cotton candy-like aromas. But this lighter-bodied varietal is capable of channeling some MAJOR complexity, and such is the case with the Nusserhof Rosso Elda. A composition of Schiava and other indigenous varietals from Alto Adige, with aromas of smoky minerals, candied roses, and wild mountain strawberries. *serve with a slight chill.
- Weingut Nusserhof is owned by Heinrich and Elda Mayr, and the vines have been in possession of their family since 1788.
- The winery’s name means, “Nut Farm,” due to the old Walnut Trees that used to line the path to their vineyard featuring indigenous varietals.
- Schiava is also known as “Vernatsch” in the local dialect, and these vines thrive in volcanic soils.
- All the wines are fermented without any temperature control.
- Picnic during autumn heatwave.
- Swimming in your tuxedo.
- This recipe for Candy Pork.
