NALS MARGREID - PFEFFERSBURGER SCHIAVA 2020
Pale red with copper highlights, good depth of colour. Fresh notes of undergrowth, blackberry, blueberry and pepper leaf. Fresh, juicy, full-bodied with a touch of almond in the finish.
The steep slopes of Santa Maddalena, where PFEFFERSBURGER Schiava is grown, are located close to Bolzano. The vines are firmly rooted in gravely, well-ventilated porphyry soil. The Mediterranean climate is characterised by very hot summers and mild winters. The grapes are harvested by hand. After being carefully destemmed, the must is fermented in stainless steel tanks with gentle pumping over. Malolactic fermentation then takes place, before the wine is aged for seven months in 80 hl wooden barrels.
ORIGIN Alto Adige DOC, Italy
MAKER Nals Margreid
A tradition that goes back to 1764, when the Campi estate was built on the site of our current winery. Nals Winery was founded in 1932 and with the merge of Margreid Winery in 1985, Nals Margreid was established.
Today, 138 wine-growing families cultivate around 160 hectares of vineyards. There are 14 areas, between two and twelve hectares in size, between Nals in the Adige Valley and Margreid in South Tyrol’s south.
The geographical features are our most valuable resource and are a constant source of inspiration when creating our wines. With a respectful approach to nature, we harvest grapes that bear the mark of Nals Margreid as they are readied for bottling in a stylised, studied and expressive manner: Alpine freshness. Harmony with the terroir. International.
