From vines painstakingly nurtured on the limestone slopes of the Dolomites comes this schiava (aka vernatsch) like no other. While light enough to chill, this character driven, low production wine delivers firm well chiseled red berry fruit laced with mountain herbs and a hint of smoke.

The Nusserhof wines are made from a tiny 2.4 hectare site in the heart of Bolzano (the capital of Alto Adige). The Mayr family has been working this property since 1788 and have kept things pretty traditional. The estate is organic, on a flat sandy site, and worked by hand. The cellar work has always been natural with nothing added and aging occurs in large neutral botti.

What importer Bowler Wine has to say about this wine...

85% Schiava/15% other. Known locally as Vernatsch, Schiava is a thin-skinned grape native to the Alto Adige and on the decline plantation-wise (about 200 ha. currently per Gloria Mayr). Nusserhof has a steep, certified-organic hillside plot of 90-year-old, pergola-planted Schiava vines on porphyry-rich volcanic soils a few kilometers from its home property in Bolzano. There are other vines mixed in, some identified as likely to be Lagrein and Merlot and the rest, both white and red, not identified at all. The fruit is manually harvested together, destemmed and co-fermented with natural yeasts in stainless steel tanks. Maceration lasts from 4-6 weeks. The wine is aged in 20-hectoliter French oak botti for about 20 months, bottled with a light filtration and aged up to 2 more years before release.
