Vernatsch, Markus Prackwieser Gump - 2021

Item # 24490 750mL

The red Vernatsch grape is also known as Schiava which hails from the Alto-Adige region of northern Italy. The vines are trained in the old Pergola system at altitudes ranging from 400 to 450 meters in elevation. Vernatsch is an addictive, lightly hued red wine that works wonders with appetizers and fish alike. Fermented in stainless steel tanks then transferred to old wood barrels to settle for around 7 months before bottling.

Staff Pick Notes

Do you like lighter-bodies wines like Pinot Noir? Do you like drinking glass after glass of red wine while watching Law & Order SVU marathons on your couch? Do you like exploring different grapes?

Clad with bright sour cherry notes and freshly-picked raspberries from your local Oregon farmers market with bright acidity to boot! This is a great bottle to bring to a party as a fun and interesting gift or when you're just having a friend over. Schiava is normally grown in Germany but it is not so commonly found in the Trentino-Alto Adige area of Italy.

Trentino-Alto Adige

Crossing the historic boundary between Italy and Austria, Trentino-Alto-Adige is in fact comprised of two autonomous regions (Trentino and Alto-Adige).

The region is most famous for its...
