Region: Vigneti delle Dolomiti, Trentino-Alto Adige, Italy
Stefan & Linda Vaja are the 9th generation of winemakers at Glassier, a farm built by their ancestors in the Dolomites. Zweigelt, a grape native to Austria and named for its creator, Frederich Zweigelt, is a cross between the grapes of St. Laurent and Blaufrankisch. This liter bottle shows delicious, tart black fruit with earthiness on the palate. This is a great, easy drinking red that can be enjoyed as is or with a light chill.
