TASTING NOTES

The name Girlan comes from the original site of Cornaiano, a village famous for wine production since the Middle Ages, located in the area of Bolzano and Lake Caldaro. An ambitious project with 23 partners, the Girlan winery honours its roots while also looking to the future. Gschleier Alte Reben Vernatsch is a red wine made from 100% Schiava grapes, from vines aged for 80 to 110 years 450m above sea level, on chalky, clay-rich and gravelly soils. The position of the vines guarantees optimal sun exposure which creates a full-bodied wine with great aging potential. The grapes are harvested manually in small containers, de-stemmed to remove the stalks and pips, and finally the must is gravity-fed into stainless steel vats ready for alcoholic fermentation. Malolactic fermentation takes place and the wine is then refined for 9 months in large oak barrels and 6 months in the bottle. Schiava di Girlan is unique, elegant and full-bodied with fruity tannins and a wonderful tanginess. A ruby red wine with great aging potential and intense aromas of red berry fruits and spicy notes with a hint of bitterness on the finish. On the palate it opens tannic and very long. This wine is perfect to pair with a starter in a fine dining experience. Read more Read less
THE WINERY

Girlan

The Girlan winery was established in 1923 in a historic 16th century farmhouse, led by founding president Johann Kofler Krautschneider. After many years of research and several micro-vinification trials, oenologist Gerhard Kofler recognised the unique potential of the Ganger vineyard in Mazzon and produced Vigna Ganger Mazzon Pinot Noir Riserva for the first time. Today, the Girlan Winery has 200 winegrowing members, spread over an area of 220 hectares for the cultivation of vineyards, in the best production areas of Oltradige and Bassa Atesina. The wine recalls the terroir of the wide Adige Valley and the complex of all those geographical, geological, vegetative and climatic factors that make this wine area unique. The wine is called upon to reflect the traits of its land, expressing its provenance in the glass. The company's philosophy is based on the concept of sustainable agriculture, developing a sustainable production line in order to be able to produce high-quality wines of regional origin also in the future, revaluing the old South Tyrolean grape varieties (Vernatsch, Pinot Blanc and Pinot Noir) and creating characterful wines with international grape varieties (Chardonnay, Sauvignon). All of this is done in a way that respects the times of nature, allowing the wines to be transferred naturally and using advanced technology, while always taking care to safeguard the traditions of the past in the various production and fermentation processes. Name and address of producer/distributor: Cantina Girlan, Via San Martino 24, I-39057 Cornaiano (BZ). Products from this winery should be stored in a cool, dry place away from heat sources.
