Trollinger

(aka. Black Hamburg, Blauer Trollinger, Schiava Grossa)

Trollinger is the most common German name for this red wine producing grape, which originated in western Austria. It is also known as Schiava in Italy where it is commonly planted in the South Tyrol region. It is alternatively known as Black Hamburg by many growers and consumers of table grapes. In Italy, and Germany, where it is grown in the Wurttemberg region, Trollinger is used to make pale red wines with low alcohol and tannin levels. Rotberger, the name given to a cross resulting from this grape, is used to produce similar light red wines. Highly productive, its exceptionally late-ripening nature means it is unpopular in other cooler parts of Germany. Trollinger has been particularly successful part of Germany's grape breeding program. Kerner, perhaps the most Riesling like of the German crosses, is a direct descendant of Trollinger. However many others include Trollinger amongst their ancestry.

  • Armani Schiava Rose Vallagarina

    Snoothrank:

    Pretty nice Italian rose made from the Schiava grape. Light pink in color with a light strawberry scent on the nose. On the palate is more soft strawberry, a touch of red cherry and a hint of watermelon. This has a decent amount of acidity with a somewhat short finish. Not bad but not great rose. Read More

  • I'm a bachelor again this weekend.  So, in order to make sure I did not starve, I went over to Trader Joe's, this morning, to see what I could pick up that would be (1) tasty and (2) easy.  (I ended up with a refrigerated lasagna and a Greek olive medley.)I also figured what's the harm in checking out the wine selection, and before I knew it 3 o...
