"Limpid raspberry with a clear rim, it’s not red, exactly, but more like the color of a Tavel rosé or Bordeaux Clairet. It’s scented of strawberries and basil, raspberries and red apple, and crackles across the palate with snappy red fruits. It finishes with a lift of herbs, and almost-bitterness that keeps it refreshing. It takes well to a light chill, which makes it a terrific aperitif with heavy appetizers: fried snacks or a charcuterie plate featuring salumi, pâté, a riot of cheeses. Pour it also with poultry, fish, pasta puttanesca, caponata, picnic sandwiches. It’s not a serious wine but is absolutely not silly."

Schiava, a Trentino autochthonous grape variety, has always been cultivated on the typical terraced vineyards in Valle di Cembra. Of a light red colour, Cembra Schiava has an elegant aroma evoking fresh red forest fruits. Soft and well balanced on the palate, it has a slightly acidic note which marries well with traditional local dishes.
