Producer: Nals Margreid
Grape: Vernatsch (Schiava)
Region: Alto Adige, Italy
Producer Info: Nals Margreid produces extraordinary, mineral rich wines from ancient terroir with enduring style and commitment to tradition. The Nals Winery was founded in 1932 by Alois Busetti and joined by the Margreid-Entiklar Winery (founded in 1954) in 1985, creating Nals Margreid.
Today, Nals Margreid is the home to 160 hectares of vineyards across 14 regions where they make the very best use of different elevation, climate, soil composition and vines.
A Sip With Mercato: Pale red with copper highlights house fresh notes of undergrowth, plum, blackberry, blueberry and pepper leaf. The fresh, full bodied palate finishes with a hint of almond. Pair with a hearty meal of red meat, potatoes and onions.
Soil Composition: Firmly rooted in gravely, well-ventilated porphyry soil.
Production: 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.
Alcohol (%): 13%
