Details for Girlan Fass 9 2017
Bottle size and vintage
Girlan Fass Nr. 9 is an extraordinary red for the whole meal, obtained from schiava grapes (Vernatsch) also called red vernaccia, one of the most widely cultivated vines in South Tyrol, and historically the "everyday" wine for South Tyroleans. The characteristics of the grape are fragrant and fruity aromas with slight hints of spice. In the glass it shows a brilliant pale ruby red, perfectly transparent, similar to a light pink. The aromas are intense, fine and elegant, with notes of rose, wild strawberries and fresh raspberries, with a hint of undergrowth and a slight spice of cinnamon.

The persistence is rather long, even if fine and played on the notes of fresh red fruits. Intoxicating, it becomes the master of the table and goes very well with lean cold cuts, even slightly smoked, game, roast meats and cheeses.
- Optimum serving temperature:Between 16ºC and 18ºC
