Lake Kaltern Classico Superiore "Quintessenz" from Cantina Caldaro - Kellerei Kaltern was born in South Tyrol near Lake Kaltern. The winery is centuries old since the business began in the early 1900s. The story features five wineries grappling with difficulties and changes, from the glorious times of the Austro-Hungarian Empire to wars and the separation of South Tyrol from Austria. Today we can speak of a vineyard cooperative of about 650 members with a total of 450 hectares fully planted with vines. The shared project is the love of wine and the opportunity to enhance the South Tyrolean territory, in the belief that only extreme attention to nature and its fruits can generate products of impeccable quality.

Schiava del Lago di Caldaro Classico Superiore "Quintessenz" grapes from Cantina Caldaro - Kellerei Kaltern grow on plants with an average age of between 30 and 70 years. The climate is characterized by particularly cold but, at the same time, sunny winter months. In spring, temperatures remain cool and then rise considerably in summer, which is hot and dry. The location is south, which ensures excellent ripeness of the grapes at harvest time, and the soil is rich in clay and limestone. Harvesting takes place between late August and early September; in the cellar, the must macerates on the skins for 10 days, followed by malolactic fermentation; it matures on the fine lees for 6 months and ages a few months in wooden barrels.

The Lago di Caldaro Classico Superiore "Quintessenz" from Cantina Caldaro - Kellerei Kaltern presents itself in the glass as a ruby red with brilliant reflections. The nose smells of ripe cherry, raspberry and strawberry with light almond notes on the finish; on the palate, it is elegant, characterful and enveloping with soft, well-integrated tannins and a long finish persistence. It pairs perfectly with appetizers based on Tyrolean dishes such as speck and/or fresh cow's milk mountain cheeses. Perfect for enjoying in the company of lifelong friends at carefree get-togethers, sipping a wine that is the result of careful and consistent work that enhances the genuine flavours of the South Tyrolean soil.
