A typical light raspberry color. Straight-forward fragrance with delicate notes of raspberry and herbs. Pleasant and mildly tannic with a delicate acidity on the palate. Elegant finish with subtle hints of cherry and strawberry.
Excellent with light cuisine, poultry, and white meat.
The Bischofsleiten, a location that belonged to the Bishops of Trento some 1,000 years ago, is one of the best around Lake Caldaro. The grapes for the “Bischofsleiten”, a Lago di Caldaro Scelto Classico wine, thrive on the traditional pergola training system in a single vineyard. This system is highly suited to the Schiava grape as the leaf canopy protects the thin skin of the fruits from excessive exposure to the sun.
The wine is a bright ruby red in hue and has a charmingly uncomplicated scent with typical Schiava notes of cherry, violet, a hint of bitter almonds and fine herbs and spices. It is pleasant and fine on the palate with a subtle acidity and mild tannins, with notes of raspberry in the finish.
