Alto Adige DOC Schiava Grigia | Red wine made from Schiava Grigia (min. 85%) grown in Alto Adige (Südtirol) in northern Italy (see Alto Adige DOC). The wine is more bright pink than red in colour, with aromas of violet, red currant, pomegranate and marzipan as well as a salty sour tang. It is perhaps the most refined of the Schiava group of varieties.
