Cantina Caldaro Lago di Caldaro
Characteristic: Red wine, dry
Denomination: Lago di Caldaro Classico Superiore DOC
Grape Variety: 100% Schiava
Terroir: The Kalterersee for us is both reference and identification point: Firstly, there is a large part of our vineyards around the lake, which bear, just as our winery, the name of the village Caldaro. On the other hand also the wine, that is produced from the Vernatsch grapes from the vineyards around the lake, is called „Kalterersee“.
Vinification: A one week fermentation on the skins with a controlled temperature of 24°C, malo-lactic fermentation and a four month aging on the fine lees in stainless steel and large casks.
Description: light cherry red, dominant fruit tones of cherry and raspberry, with a touch of bitter almonds, voluminous, very soft on the palate, pure drinking pleasure
Pairings: This wine is ideal as an aperitif, an accompaniment to appetizers, or to typical Tyrolean fare such as speck and sausage, but also to lighter meats and mild cheeses.
