    ''Today's wine of the week, a Schiava-based light red from alpine Alto Adige in northern. Italy, made a particularly lovely bridge from white wines, with its pretty floral lift and bright red fruits, and the refreshing acidity that chilling accentuates.''

    ''From 60-90 year-old Schiava vines in the Sudtirol village of Kurtatsch, where vineyards feel the influence of both the Mediterranean and the Alps, this juicy and lively red is aged in large Slovanian barrels. It has a caramel edge to its raspberry, red cherry and burnt blueberry aromas and a peppery floral note that carries onto the dry and spicy palate. A natural pairing with cold cuts and charcuterie, Schiava is also a traditional aperitif served slightly chilled. Try also with pizza, picnics and garden party fare. ''
