Schiava gentile

Towards the Valdadige, the Marzemino gives way to Schiava, in German Vernatsch. "Schiava", meaning “slave”, it seems, because this grape was once considered a "handmaid" of other, more noble wines and to which the upper part of the rows was reserved. But, if well produced, the Schiava need not have to bow down to anyone. This is demonstrated by the fact that, between Trentino and Alto Adige, some actual denominations are dedicated to this low alcohol, sparkling and versatile wine, such as Santa Maddalena and Lago di Caldaro. Once widespread throughout the North, today the Schiava, in its many varieties, occupies 16% of the South Tyrolean vineyard and is the subject of a new, and deserved, enhancement, also because it is able, at times, to sustain moderate ageing.
